could someone please help me with some of these probelms. i needed really soon, thanx alot

1. Let a=(1,1) and b=(4,2). Verify that

|a-(projection of a onto b)| <= |a-kb|, for all k any R.

2. ABCDE is a flexible string with AB=BC=CD=DE and AE horizontal. Masses are attached each exerting forces as shown. Find W.

-------A_____________________E

--------\70°-------------70°/

---------\-----------------/

----------\---------------/

----------B\_____________/D

and

-------------B_________D

-------------|\-------/|

---------W?--|-\-----/-| W?[down]

-------[down]|--\---/--|

-------------|---\-/---|

------------------C and <c=120°

------------------|

------------------|

-----------------800 N[down}

the length of BD on both diagrams is same except i couldn't make it much clear, u should get the idea by the angles between them.

3. Three masses of 3 kg, 4kg, and 5kg are attached to strings as shown in the diagram. the weights are released and the system reaches equilibrium. Describe final position of the weights.

---|----|--------|

---3----4--------5

consider the o's to be the two pulleys or something, and the lines are the strings.
