    An unknown weight is placed on a string that is attached to two spring scales at a 60degree angle. The weight is evenly distributed and each spring scale reads 2.4 N. With this information and the conditions of static equilibrium, determine the weight of the unknown object. Please show all work.

    The same setup is used to measure another unknown weight at 45 degrees and the scales read 1.2 N.

    See attached file for full problem description.
