a 70.0 kb man climbs vertical rope attached to ceiling. weight of rope is neglected. calculate tension in rope, if accelerate up rope at 0.40 m/s^2(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

T = m(g+a)

T = 70.0(9.8+.4)

= 714 N

slides downward acceleration of .40

T = m(g-a)

t = 70.0(9.8-.4)

= 685 N

looks good?
