# Problem 5-57 Translational Equil.- Part 2 - 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. $T_1 = 49.9\; N;$ $T_2 = 40.8 \;N$]

Accumulated Solution

Correct!

This is the most natural choice.

This is a case of:

(A)   Translational equilibrium.

(B)   Accelerated motion.
