## Homework Statement

Just started tension problems and having some trouble figuring out how to approach the problem. Thanks for any help in advance.

Consider a rocket that is taking off and towing a large container of trash. The

rocket’s engines exert a force, F, that causes the rocket and container to accelerate at

4.50 m/s2. The rocket has a mass of 3.00 × 103 kg, and the container has a mass of

1.00 × 103 kg. Find the tension in the tow cable and the force, F.
