Btw, when are you going to reveal the tension in the support lines, and advise

I'll help you get started with the solution and give you hints if you getstuck. How's that? (After all, you said you "love statics", right?)

ropes of equal length attached to the ceiling. The ropes make a right

angle with each other. What's the tension in the ropes?

First hint: It's clearly right/left symmetric, so the ropes each have

the same tension. What angle do they make with the vertical? Do you

need a hint on how to determine that? (If so, I won't ridicule you for

it.)

Meanwhile, go ahead and draw the vector diagram on your "calculation

paper", if you need to.

tension was W/2. You're a bullshit artist.

enough for you to find, though. (Or for anybody else reading this who wants

to find out which of us is lying.)
