# Problem 5-57 Translational Equil.- Part 2 - B

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. $T_1 = 49.9\; N;$ $T_2 = 40.8 \;N$]

Accumulated Solution

These would be OK but the choice of one axis is unconventional and might lead to a sign error.

Try again.
