In this problem (open the attachment to see the picture):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

*We assume F_1 is less than F_2

*We assume that friction is negligible

*We assume that the rope has a mass m_r not equal to zero

Q1.What is the acceleration? Choose a coordinate system and include the

direction of the acceleration in your answer.

Q2.What is the force exerted on mass 1 by the rope, T_1?

Q3.What is the force exerted on mass 2 by the rope, T_2?

Q4.Are your asnwers to 2 and 3 equal in magnitude? Why?

Q5.Now assume that M_1=12 kg

M_2=5 kg

F_1=5 N

F_2=15 N

M_r= 2 kg

Repeat your answers to parts 1, 2 and 3 using these values.
