(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Pulling up on a rope, you lift a 4.00-kg bucket of water from a well with an acceleration of 2.40m/s2. What is the Tension in the rope?

2. I know the basic equations like net force = mass X acceleration. Is the tension my net force? Or is it my normal force? I basically have no clue what equation to use.

3. I tried Fnet=ma, assuming Tension is the net force. With that, I got 9.6N. Is this correct?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
