Hi,
Doing a tension in cable problem, Trying to find T, ended up with this, can this be arranged to find that? If so, an explanation would be very helpful
0.25(T*sin21) + 4.88(T*cos21) = 50510.8
Thanks
You have:
$\displaystyle 0.25T \sin \theta + 4.88 T \cos \theta = 50510.8 $
where $\displaystyle \theta$ = 21 degrees. This is the same as:
$\displaystyle T(0.25 \sin \theta + 4.88 \cos \theta) = 50510.8 $
Rearrange to get:
$\displaystyle T= \frac {50510.8}{0.25 \sin \theta + 4.88 \cos \theta}$
