- Rope tension

- Relevant Equations
- t = ma

Hi,

I'm being asked to determine the tension of a rope only knowing that g = 9.8 m.s-2. I understand that in order to calculate tension, I would need to multiply mass with acceleration. But i don't understand how i would in this case. This is the question for reference. Thanks for your help.

And 9.8N isn't correct so I am confused..
