Problem Details
The two ropes seen in the figureA figure shows a piano held by two ropes at different angles. The gravity force pulls the piano downward with a magnitude of 2500 newtons. Rope 1 with tension T1 pulls upward and to the left with 1830 newtons of force at an angle of 60 degrees with respect to the horizontal. Rope 2 with tension T2 pulls upward and to the right with 1295 newtons of force directed 45 degrees with respect to the horizontal. are used to lower a 255 kg piano 5.70 m from a second-story window to the ground.
