**The Question**

**(a)**By considering the motion of A, find, in terms of

*m*and

*g*, the tension in the string.

What is it actually asking me here? In terms of, does that mean find a value for

*m*and

*g*or what?

**Thank you**

It is looking for the tension. m and g, will appear as variables, in the expression for Tension.

I'm sorry I don't understand that. Does that mean that m and g could be unknown?

Yes, it just means leave m and g in as terms in the tension; you don't need to bother working out what they are.
