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.

If u were to work out the acceleration allowed to lift the weight. [tex] 50000-(4500*9.81)= 4500a [/tex] By working out
