1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A body is connected at the middle with two different ropes as in the figure. The maximum force that rope A can resist is 60 N, and for rope B its 50 N. What will happen if someone apply a downward force at the loose end of rope B, a) gradually b) very fast 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution My opinion is: if the force is greater than 50N, rope B will tear for both cases. Nothing will happen to rope A.
