    What is the load that each leg of the rigging will see?  

    • A.

      4,377lbs

    • B.

      5,780lbs

    • C.

      8,688lbs

    • D.

      5,000lbs

    Correct Answer
    B. 5,780lbs
    Explanation
    The angle between two slings in a rigging system plays a critical role in ensuring safe lifting operations. Ideally, this angle should be around 60 degrees to evenly distribute the load among the slings and minimize stress. Deviating significantly from this angle can lead to unequal loading and increase the risk of sling failure. It's essential to accurately calculate and adjust the angle based on factors such as the load weight, rigging configuration, and safety regulations. Following industry standards and guidelines is crucial to determine the appropriate angle and ensure the safety of lifting operations. In this scenario, the correct answer would be 60 degrees for the angle between two slings. 
    The load that each leg of the rigging will see can be calculated by dividing the total load by the number of legs.
    Total load = 23,120 lbs Number of legs = 4
    So, the load per leg = Total load / Number of legs = 23,120 lbs / 4 = 5,780 lbs.
    Hence, the correct answer is indeed 5,780 lbs.
