Member warned about using the template.
1. A rope connecting a 10 and 20 lb weight passes over a cylinder. The ropecylinder friction coefficient is 0.2. Rope mass, cylinder radius not given.
2. Solve for downward acceleration of the heavy 20 lb block
3. I'm confused because this problem doesn't give a mass for the rope, so I assumed we could neglect friction. Then after writing force/tension equations for both masses and combining them, I got 10.7 ft/s^2 as the answer, which isn't one of the options.
