# Mechanics (tension) Watch

1. Hi guys, there is a sort of mechanics question I have no idea how to answer and there is a bunch of questions but i don't know the method, please could somebody walk me through the method for a question like this?

a box of mass m kg s supported by two ropes and is at rest. The left-hand rope is 60 degrees to the left of the vertical with a force of 600N. The right hand rope is 27 degrees to the right of the vertical.
a) find the tension in the right hand rope
b) find m.
2. Resolve horizontally to get the tension

Then resolve vertically to get m
