[SOLVED] Compound pulley tension question 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object of mass M is held in place by an applied force and a pulley system as shown in Figure P5.55. The pulleys are massless and frictionless. http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/7840/p445fw5.th.gif [Broken] (a) Find the tension in each section of rope, T1, T2, T3, T4, andT5. (Answer in terms of M and g.) (b) Find the magnitude of F. 3. The attempt at a solution The only thing I know is that T5=Mg. I'm trying to draw the a FBD for each pulley but I'm getting confused with relating T1, T2, T3, and T4 with Mg and F.
