1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Q .Find the tensions in the strings (1), (2) and (3) and the acceleration of the mass ‘m’ just after : (a) string (1) is cut (b) string (2) is cut (c) string (3) is cut 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I feel the answer should be (a) T1 = 0 ; T2 = mg ; T3 = 2 mg ; a = g (b) T1 = mg ; T2 = 0 ; T3 = 0 ;a = 0 (c) T1 = mg ; T2 = 0 ; T3 = 0 ;a = 0 I would be grateful if somebody could check my understanding of the problem . Have I answered correctly ?
