Problem 5-57 Translational Equil.- D

A sign outside a hair stylist's shop is suspended by two wires. The force of gravity on the sign has a magnitude of \(55.7\; N.\) If the angles between the wires and the horizontal are as shown in the figure, determine the magnitude of the tensions in the two wires.
[Ans. \(T_1 = 49.9\; N;\) \(T_2 = 40.8 \;N\)]

No. The horizontal components of the forces must be included; they are not zero.
