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
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.
