Arlene is to walk across a high wire strung horizontally between two buildings 13.0 m apart. The sag in the rope when she is at the midpoint is 10.0°, as shown in the figure below. If her mass is 52.0 kg, what is the tension in the rope at this point?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The correct answer is found to be:

Tension = (52.0 kg) x (9.8 m/s^2) / (2 x sin 10.0°) = 1467 N

** P/S: Please remember to give me a review later on once the answer is correct. I would be highly appreciate it. Thank you. **
