Homework Help: Confirming Newton's Law Answer

  1. Jun 12, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I tried solving the question below, but I get a different answer than any available inthe m multiple choice.


    2. Relevant equations

    Netwon's Second Law

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I get 82N. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/incpl2.html gives me 82N for the tension as well. Am I incorrect? Apparently, the answer is E.
