# Problem 5-57 Translational Equil.- Part 3 - A

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

$a = 0$

Correct!

The acceleration is zero $(a = 0)$.

The condition to be applied is:

(A)    $\sum F = ma$

(B)   $\sum F = 0$

(C)   $\sum F_x = 0,$ $\sum F_y = 0$
