1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I can do the math work, but I always overthink these multiple choice concepts. A block is attached to each end of a rope that passes over a pulley suspended from the ceiling. The blocks do not have the same mass. If the rope does not slip on the pulley, then at any instant after the blocks start moving the rope: 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Exerts different forces on both blocks, the lesser force exerted on the smaller block? I figure that F = ma and the acceleration is the same.
