    A tree limb breaks off and comes to rest across a barbed wire fence at a point that is not in the middle between two fence posts. The limb exerts a downward force of 11 N on the wire. The left section of the wire makes an angle of 14 degree relative to the horizontal and sustains a tension of 447 N. What is the magnitude and direction of the tension that the right section of the wire sustains?
