1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A 6-kg bucket of water is being pulled straight up by a string at a constant speed.

What is the tension in the rope?

0 N because the bucket has no acceleration.

2. Relevant equations
$$\Sigma$$F=ma
ma=T-mg
T=ma+mg

3. The attempt at a solution

I get about 60 but I want to be sure before I submit this answer. can someone please check my work to make sure i am right?

No its 0N any constant acceleration is in equilibrium therefore the net force is equal to 0. W=FD W=0

im looking for the tension and the tension wouldn't be 0 because if it were the bucket would be falling

sorry should have read your question better 60N is right for the tension.
