Two boxes, A and B, are connected to each end of a light vertical rope, as shown in the following figure. A constant upward force 74.0 N applied to box A. Starting from rest, box B descends 10.6 m in 3.00 s. The tension in the rope connecting the two boxes is 33.0 N
This is the given figure.
The given information is: F=74.0N
Distance traveled for box B=10.6m
The Attempt at a Solution
Wrote out the formulas for each of the parts, since the problem is asking to solve for box B first, I attempted to solve for that. The forces that I assumed were acting on box B are T, F of gravity, and possibly(?) the force of box A, since they are connected by the string. I suppose where I am confused most at this point is how the diagram looks. Since the problem is saying that box B descends, is it moving in the opposite direction of A?
