1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have a 1 kg ball hanging from rope A, and a 2 kg ball connected to the 1 kg ball by rope B. They are accelerating up at 4.0 m/s^2. I need to know the tension in rope A and rope B. 2. Relevant equations Tension = Fg + ma ????? 3. The attempt at a solution Rope A: (1 kg + 2 kg) * (9.8 m/s^2) + (1 kg + 2 kg) * (4 m/s^2) = 41.4 N Rope B: (2 kg) * (9.8 m/s^2) + (2 kg) * (4 m/s^2) = 27.6 N Am I doing this correctly?
