Two Ropes at Angles Holding Object Up:Physics/Statics Problem

An object is hanging from a ceiling and two ropes are holding it up at angles. Find the the tension of the ropes. The easiest way to solve this problem is by making a force diagram of what is going on in the problem. You can then see what forces cancel out and make equations from it. The thing about statics problems is that nothing is moving so everything should cancel out. Hope this video helps and thanks for watching
