Homework Help: Motion Problem

  1. Sep 30, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Figure 5-57 (link above) shows three blocks attached by cords that loop over frictionless pulleys. Block B lies on a frictionless table; the masses are mA = 6.80 kg, mB = 8.60 kg, and mC = 12.0 kg. When the blocks are released, what is the tension in the cord at the right?

    Unfortunately we can't see what you see when we click on the link. I have therefore removed it as it is just advertising for the website. Could you please be more descriptive or post another picture we can all view.
