1.A 10 kg block (A) on a table is connected by a string to a 78kg mass (B), which is hanging over the edge of the table. Assuming that frictional forces may be neglected, what is the magnitude of acceleration of the 10kg black when the other block is released?
2.So the acceleration of the block (A) is going to be the same as the acceleration of the Mass (B) in the y direction? Where the block =A and the Mass =B 3. block x: T=m(A)a Mass y: Tm(B)g= m(B)a Substitute in T in the Mass y equation: mamg=ma Therefore: a= (m(B)g) / (m(B)m(A)) (7.8*9.8)/(78+10)=8.7? Seems a little quick to be right?
