A bowling ball is suspended from a ceiling hook using a thin piece of rope. If the rope is
exerting a 65 N force upward on the ball, describe the corresponding reaction force in
(a) its magnitude
(b) its direction
(c) on what object it is exerted
(d) by which object it is exerted
The Attempt at a Solution
A) The magnitude corresponds to the force of tension in the rope, and the ball isn't moving anywhere.
B) direction corresponds to the force of gravity because this is where the ball will go if it is released from the rope.
C) Force is exerted on the rope
D) Force is exerted by bowling ball because of F = ma
Am I right?
