(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. someone is pulling on a heavy straight rope with force F. Points A and B are one quarter of the distance from each end, and points O and P are the ends of rope. The rope is attached to a heavy block, which slides on a frictionless floor, and which therefore accelerates as it is pulled.

Select the appropriate choice for each of the following statements: True, False, Greater than, Less than, or Equal to For choices involving comparisons Greater than, Less than or Equal to, consider only the magnitudes of the quantities being compared.

1. The velocities of points A and B are equal. TF

2. Greater than Less than Equal to The acceleration of the point O is ..... the acceleration of the block. TF

3. Greater than Less than Equal to The tension at the point B is ..... the tension at the point A. TF

2. Is the tension equal everywhere on a heavy rope?
