1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A weight hangs from a ring at the middle of a rope, as the drawing illustrates. The picture is here http://plasma4.sr.unh.edu/ng/phys401/cq6-2.pdf at the bottom. (PDF FILE) Can the person who is pulling on the right end of the rope ever make the rope perfectly horizontal? 3. The attempt at a solution I say the man can make it horizontal because Fy = n - mg = 0 and Fx = T - T = 0 (since there would be tension on both sides. I am pretty sure I'm right just lookin for that second opinion. thx for any help!
