[SOLVED] Hooks and pulleys (torque and force) 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two weights are connected by a very light flexible cord that passes over a 50.0N frictionless pulley of radius .300m. The pulley is a solid uniform disk and is supported by a hook connected to the ceiling. What force does the hook exert on the ceiling. The weight on the left is 75.0N, and the weight on the right is 125N. 3. The attempt at a solution I can find the acceleration of the entire system, but I can't see how this would change the weight of the entire system?
