    Help with Trig problem

    disregard the weight if the rack, hanger, and chain. the length of the rack is 16''. the chain is attached to the wall 1ft above the hinge. if a coat weighing 6 pounds and 4 oz. is hung on the hanger, what is the resulting tension of the chain?...you may assume that the rack is perpendicular to wall.


    Thanks, User001
