Solution Summary

The expert calculates the range of values for which cables will remain taut.

Solution Preview

N=Newton
T=Tension
X component, N
F=Force

Fx=600*cos45°
Px= -P
Tbcx= Tbc*sin30°
Tacx= -Tac*sin30°

Y component, N

Fy=-600*sin45°
Py=0
Tbcy= Tbc*cos30°
Tacy= Tac*cos30°

First equation:
Total of Fx=0=424,3+Tbc*sin30°-Tac*sin30°-P
Second equation:
Total of Fy=0=-424,3+Tbc*cos30°+Tac*cos30°

From second equation I ...
