Homework Help: Force problems

  1. Dec 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Untitled4.jpg
    Untitled3.jpg
    Untitled2.jpg

    2. Relevant equations
    F=ma
    w=mg


    3. The attempt at a solution
    1. I don't understand it at all.
    2. F of M: T=9.8M
    Fx of m: TB x= TA x
    Fy of m: TB y + TB y= Fg (TB y + TB y= 9.8m)
    I don't know what to do from here.
    3. TA> TB That's all I understood.


    Any help is appreciated.

    3. Since TA is greater than TB, TA/TB >1, right?
