Two objects are connected and suspended by a system of ropes, as illustrated below.

These parameters are known
  • the object weights, w1 and w2
  • the length of the ropes L1, L2, and L3
  • the anchor points (x1, y1) and (x4, y4)
The objects positions and the rope tensions are calculated from a numeric solution of the equations that describe
  • horizontal and vertical force balances
  • and the constraints imposed by the lengths of the ropes
