A light rod of length 2m is suspended from the ceiling horizontally by means of two vertical wires of equal length. A weight W is hung from the light rod as shown in the figure. The rod is hung by means of a steel wire of cross-sectional area ${A}_{1}=0.1$ $c{m}^{2}$ and brass wire of cross-sectional area ${A}_{2}=0.2$ $c{m}^{2}$. To have equal stress in both wires, ${\mathrm{T}}_{1}/{\mathrm{T}}_{2}$=?
