Homework Help: Links of a chain

  1. Sep 29, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I don't have a picture of the diagram, but I'll do my best to describe it. A chain consisting of 4 identical links is hanging by a rope. The question wants to know what the free body diagrams would be for each link. It also wants all of the Newton's third law pairs to be identified, and it wants the rank, from smallest to largest, of the magnitudes of all forces (explaining the reasoning, including how Newton's 2nd and 3rd laws were used).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
