A chandelier hangs h 0.98 m down from two chains of equal length. The chains are separated from one another by a length L = 0.85 m at the ceiling. The chandelier has a mass of m = 21 kg.

Randomized Variables

h= 0.98 m

L-0.85 m

m-21 kg

(a) Choose the correct Free Body Diagram given the gravitational force, F force. F_{g} the force exerted by the chains, F_{T} and the normal force, F_{N.}

Part (b) What is the angle, θ in degrees, between one of the chains and the vertical where it contacts the chandelier?

Part (c) Write an expression for F_{Ty, }the magnitude of the y-component of the tension in one chain, in terms of the given information and variables available in the palette.

Part (d) Using your previous results, find the tension, F_{T} in Newtons, in one chain.
