Find the tension in each cord in ?Fig. E5.7? if the weight of the suspended object is w.

Solution 7E Step 1 of 6: Since it is a static problem, The sum of the forces in any direction = 0 Let the tension on the cord A , B and C be T ,T and T respectively. A B C Consider fig(a) In case of cord C, FBD for the cord C, The sum of the forces in the vertical direction = 0 T C W = 0 T C W Therefore, tension on the cord C is W.
