Calculating tension

  1. Oct 11, 2007 #1
    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. Hopefully someone can help me out.

    The problem is their is a 65.0 kg box hanging from a rope. The box has a velocity of 4.8 m/s in the Y direction and is speeding up at 4.8 m/s^2. The Y axis points up.

    The question is, how do i calculate the tension on the rope?

    Welcome! Identify the forces acting on the box and apply Newton's 2nd law. Please show your attempt.
