(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A pulley Problem

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

So, in the diagram attached one mass is 1 kg, and the other one is 2 kg.

and what would be reading on the scale

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I think this is very much like an elevator problem where the elevator is moving up, and we try to find the apparent weight, and here we have to find the apparent weight of 1 kg mass.

so, first I found overall a to be let's say a

Acceleration of the system = a

and then using that apparent weight formula <dunn want to derive it here>

Apparent weight = reading on the scale = 1 kg x (g+a)
