The tree needs to fall uphill even though it is leaning downhill. The felling notch at O is sufficiently large so that the resisting moment at O is negligible. The trunk above point O weighs P35 kN. With the aid of the winch W the cable prevents the tree from falling downhill. Determine the tension in the cable AB. Other dimensions in metres are P36, P37 & P38.
The tension in the cable AB in kN to2 decimal places is,
