\begin{array}{l}{\text { A large wrecking ball }} \\ {\text { is held in place by two light }} \\ {\text { steel cables (Fig. ES. } 6) \text { .

$$
\sum F_{y}=m a_ y
$$

$$
\sum F_ y=0
$$

$$
T_{B} \cos 40^{\circ}-m g=0
$$

$$
\rightarrow T_{B}=\frac{m g}{\cos 40}=\frac{4090 * 9.8}{\cos 40}
$$

\(∴ T_{B}=5.23 * 10^{4} N \)

$$
\sum F_{x}=m a_{x}
$$

$$
T_{B} \sin 40-T_ A=0
$$

$$
\rightarrow\left(5.23 * 10^{4}\right) \sin 40=T_ A
$$

\(∴ T_ A=3.36 * 10^{4} N \)

add (1) & (3)

$$
T_{A}(\sin 30+\cos 30)-T_{C}=0 \rightarrow T_{A}(\sin 30+\cos 30)=T_{C}
$$

\(∴ T_ A=\frac{T_C}{\sin 30+\cos 30}=0.732 \ T _\mathrm{C}=0.732 \mathrm{w} \)

$$
T_{B}=\frac{T_{A} \cos 30}{\cos 45}=0.897 \mathrm{w}

$$
T_{B} \sin 45-T_{A} \cos 60-T_C=0 \rightarrow (1)

$$
\sum F_{x}=0

$$
T_{B} \cos 45-T_{A} \sin 60=0 \rightarrow (2)

(2) * -1

$$
T_A\text {  sin 60 - } T_{B} \text { cos 45 }=0 \longrightarrow \mathbb{(3)}
$$

$$
T_{A}(\sin 60-\cos 60)-T_C=0
$$

$$
T_{A}=\frac{T_{C}}{\sin 60-\cos 60}=2.73 T_{C}={2.73 w}
$$

$$
\rightarrow T_B=\frac{T_A\text { sin 60 }}{\cos 45}=\frac{2.73 \mathrm{w} * \sin 60}{\cos 4 \mathrm{5}}={3.35 \mathrm{w}}

$$

$$
\sum F_{x}=0
$$

$$
T\cos 31-mg \sin 25=0
$$

$$
T \cos 31-(1130)(9.8) \sin 25=0
$$

$$
T=\frac{(1130 * 9.8) \sin 25}{\cos 31}=5460 \mathrm{N}
$$

$$
\sum F_ y=0 \longrightarrow {n}+T \sin 31-m g \cos 25=0
$$

$$
\rightarrow n=m g \cos 2 5-T \sin 31 \rightarrow n=(1130)(9.8) \cos 25-5460 \sin 31
$$

\(∴ \quad n=7220 N \)
