## Homework Statement

A cat is stuck in a tree. You are designated with the job to get it out, yet you do not want to climb the tree, because you may get stuck as well. Instead you set up a pulley system. A rope (consider it massless) runs from the seat you sit on over an ideal pulley and then to your hand. You pull on the loose end of the rope with a force of 348 N. You weigh 612 N and the seat you sit on weighs 16.0 N. (a) What is your acceleration? (b) What force does the seat exert on you?

## Homework Equations

F=ma

t - mg = ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

ok so i found the mass to be 64.2 kg

the combined force weight is 628 N

i thought the tension would be 348 N but I'm not getting the right answer with that
