It isn't clear what is meant by "the inside angle is 10 deg" so we will solve this both ways.If the force is mainly sideways, only a small component is down and we can have a tension much larger than 250N. Sin(10) is very smallTsin(10) can be no more than 250NT=250N//sin(10)=1,440NThe other way to interpret "the ... See the full answer
