The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Blocks A, B, and C are placed as in the figure and connected by ropes of negligible mass. Both A and B weigh 24.9N each, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.39. Block C descends with constant velocity. a) Find the tension in the rope connecting blocks A and B. b) What is the weight of block C? c) If the rope connecting A and B were cut, what would be the acceleration of C? The attempt at a solution I figured out part (a), 9.71N. I am stuck and have a mental block and can't get the weight of block C to save my life. I used the equation: T2=T1+wsin[tex]\Theta[/tex]+[tex]\mu[/tex]NB which yielded a result of 34.37N, which I know is incorrect. The answer in the back of the book is 30.8N, but the coefficient of friction and weights are different.
