Garrett21 said:Can someone please tell me how my teacher got Acceleration of 1.44m/s^2?
I don't see how its even possible without another force acting on the object
Chestermiller said:Is it possible that the pulley has specified mass and radius in the problem statement?
Chet
What were the instructions? I got the same results as oddjobmj.Garrett21 said:No, she is just introducing this so there is no friction.. I was scratching my head while everyone was saying they got the same answer following instructions, but i vaguely disagreed with it so that's why I am asking here.

Chestermiller said:One more thing. Are you sure the mass of A wasn't 30 Kg?
Chet
Yes, pretty close.Garrett21 said:Yes 100% if the mass was 30kg would the acceleration be equal to what the problem states?
Acceleration is the rate of change of an object's velocity over time. It can be calculated by dividing the change in velocity by the change in time.
Acceleration is typically measured in meters per second squared (m/s^2). This unit represents the change in velocity over one second.
To solve tension problems involving acceleration, you must first identify the forces acting on the object and their directions. Then, you can use Newton's Second Law of Motion (F=ma) to calculate the tension force in the system.
The formula for acceleration is a = (vf - vi) / t, where a is acceleration, vf is final velocity, vi is initial velocity, and t is time.
An acceleration of 1.44m/s^2 means that for every second an object is in motion, its velocity will increase by 1.44m/s. This will cause the object to speed up and cover more distance in less time.
