1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A .66 kg block is suspended from the middle of a 1.14 m long string (.57m segments). The ends of the string are attached to the ceiling at points separated by 1 m, and the block can slip along the long string. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2. 1. What angle does the string make with the ceiling? 2. What is the tension in the string? 3. The .66 kg block is removed and two .33 kg blocks are attached to the string such that the lengths of each string segments are equal (.38m). What is the tension in the string segments attached to the ceiling on the right? 4. What is the tension in the horizontal segment? 2. Relevant equations F = ma tan (theta) = y-component / x-component 3. The attempt at a solution All I could come up with was figuring out the Newton force of the block: F = ma F = .66 * 9.8 F = 6.468 I do not know where to continue from there. I am thinking I have to do something with the .57 m string pieces but am unsure on what to do with them. I am just focusing on the first part for now, I just decided to post the other parts in case I need help with them down the road. Thanks for any help.
