A spider is resting after starting to spin its web. The gravitational force on the spider is 0.150 Newton down. The spider is supported by different tension forces in the two strands above it, so that the resultant vector force on the spider is zero. The two strands are perpendicular to each other, so the x and y directions have been chosen to be along them. The tension Tx is 0.127 N. Find a) Tension Ty b)the angle the x axis makes with the horizontal and c) the angle the y axis makes with the horizontal.
