I took one of those stupid computer IQ tests and one of the questions is still nagging my poor tired brain. a monkey and a weight are on the opposite sides of a pully. The rope, that the monkey is holding on to and the weight is tied to, is considered weightless. The pully is also fricitonless. The monkey and the weight are the same weight. Q) If the weight and the monkey are both hanging on the rope at the same distance from the pully and are at an equalibrium, what happends to the weight if the monkey climbs up the rope(towrds the pully) A) the weight rises 2) the weight lowers C) the weight stays in the same spot I said c. if the rope is weightless, it shouldnt matter where the opposites weights are on the rope. For some reason I cannot convince myself that I am correct. What do you think?
