Homework Help: Help Me Please!

  1. Oct 4, 2004 #1
    In this problem (open the attachment to see the picture):

    *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.

    Do you get 0.526 m/s^2, 12.37 N and 11.32 N ?

    would the acceleration be a= F / m1 + m2
     
  7. Oct 10, 2004 #6
    F12(the force exerted on by m1 on m2) = (m2/m1+m2) *F
