1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two masses, measuring 800g and 400g respectively, are attached to spring scales and an Atwood Machine. What will the reading of each scale be? View attachment 52223 2. Relevant equations Fg = mg 3. The attempt at a solution I think that the reading on each spring scale will equal the force of gravity acting on each attached mass. For Scale 1: Reading = Fg = mg = (0.8kg)(9.8N/kg) = 7.84 N For Scale 2: Reading = Fg = mg = (0.4kg)(9.8N/kg) = 3.92 N Is this correct?
