A flower pot with a mass of 6.8kg is hanging by 4 wires that make an angle of 53° from the horizontal. If the pot with 7 wires were instead located on Jupiter where the acceleration due to gravity is -23.1m/s², what would the tension in each wire be?

I'll assume the angle is the same.
The vertical component of the total tension is balanced by the weight.
