Wien a mass of 25 kg is hung from the middle of a fixed straight aluminum wire, the wire sags to make an angle of 12° with the horizontal as shown in Fig. 9-63. Determine the radius of the wire.
Step 1 of 6 </p>
When the load is suspended to the straight aluminum wire. The wire stretches downward.
The free body diagram shows the tensions on the string and weight of the load.
Step 2 of 6
The components of the tensions are drawn and with first condition of equilibrium we can find the tensions.
The tension is the same on two sides of the aluminum.
