In a “modern art” exhibit, a multicolored empty industrial wire spool is suspended from two light wires as shown in Fig. 8.56. The spool has a mass of 50.0 kg, with an outer diameter of 75.0 cm and an inner axle diameter of 18.0 cm. One wire is attached tangentially to the axle and makes a angle with the vertical. The other wire is attached tangentially to the outer edge and makes an unknown angle with the vertical. Determine the tension in each wire and the angle θ.
