## Homework Statement

A 2.0 X 10^-4 kg spider is suspended from a thin strand of spider web. The greatest tension the strand can withstand is 2.0 X 10^-3 N. if the spider was to ascend the strand from rest going to 1.0 m/s in 4.0 s with a steady acceleration, will the strand be able to support the motion?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

2.0 X 10^-4 kg (9.8 m/s²) = 1.96 X 10^-3 kg(m)/s²

2.0 X 10^-4 kg (0.25 m/s²) = 5.0 X 10^-5

1.96 X 10^-3 + 5.0 X 10^-5 = 2.46 X 10^-4

yes because 2.0 X 10^-3 is greater than 2.46 X 10^-4
