I am trying to solve the tension in the cable system and I can not get to the answer.
See attached file for question 44 and 46.
I have no clue as to what to do with the 100 kg weight on the 44 problem.
As for 46. I came up with 7 T at the p arrow, and when I multiply that to 3 for finding T I do not get 222 N. I get a much larger number. I am not calculating them properly. I have followed my book, but it's not working.
Any help would be great, or to explain it to me. My teacher showed me to do FBD of each pulley, but where do you start, that is what I don't get also.
Thanks
Joanne
