  1. Jun 27, 2005 #1
    Four blocks are on a horizontal surface.

    The blocks are connected by thin strings with tensions Tx, Ty, Tz. The masses of the blocks are A=44.0 kg, B=21.0 kg, C=24.0 kg, D=35.0 kg. Two forces, F1=75.0N and F2=51.0N act on the masses as shown. Assume that the friction between the masses and the surface is negligible and calculate the tension Tz.

    If you show your work, it would be easier to help you by correcting mistakes, if any.
