1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rope is pulling up a 1200 Kg car. The upwards acceleration is 0.8 m/s2. How much tension should the rope be able to withstand? 2. Relevant equations Net force is equal to mass x acceleration. 3. The attempt at a solution So would it just be 1200 Kg x 0.8 m/s2 which is 960 Newtons?
