I am working on a simple belt and pulley question, as pictured below.

To find the magnitude, I used the following equation:

(g(M-m))/(M+m)

So,

9.81(2500-600)/(2500+600) = 6.01 - Answer = 6kN

Is this correct, or am I doing it totally wrong? I have searched for the same question but didn't find any like this with a single pulley, all other examples seem to show 2 pulleys.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
