## Homework Statement

Find the tension of a rope with a hanging mass of 0.5kg that falls with an acceleration of 0.44ms^2

## Homework Equations

T = ma

T = ma-mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

T = mg = 0.5*9.81 = 4.905N, I would assume that this is correct for a static load on the rope ?

My question is. How does the relationship between gravity and acceleration act on the tension of the rope? Is the correct equation

T = mg-ma ?

Any help would be appreciated
