You've been called to investigate an accident in which a cable broke while lifting a 4500kg container. The steel cable is 2.0cm in diameter and has a safety rating of 50,000N. The crane is designed not to exceed speeds of 3.0m/s or accelerations of 1.0m/s^2, and your tests find the crane is NOT defective. what is your conclusion? did the crane operator life too heavy a load or was the cable defective. can someone check my solution? i dont know if its right the max tension the cable can hold is 50,000N T-((4500kg)*(9.81m/s/s))=4500(1.0m/s/s) T= 48,645<50,000 which means the cable must of been broken because it could possibly hold more.
