Ok - So 2 ends of a cord of length 5.6m are attached to a beam 4.8m apart. A shoe is hanging off the cord 2.1m from one end.
When i'm calculating the angles that are the 2 sections of cord meet the beam, is this correct...
Using the cosine rule, we can asign a = 5.6, b = 4.8, c = 2.1
So...
So
I'd then do the same to find the other angle?
If not please could someone advise
I solved it, since I think we have a triangle
the question said a chord 5.6m attached to a another one with length 4.8 right ??
then a shoe is hanging off the rope 2.1 m from one end
the end of what ?? and the shoe is hanging off which rope you said before chord then rope ??
can you explain
