I need advice on where to stick the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ag

A (m1=9.4 kg) bucket of water is raised from a well by a rope. (ag=9.8 m/s²) If the upward acceleration of the bucket is (a=2.8 m/s²), find the force exerted by the rope on the bucket.

Finding Fw1

Fw1=m1(ag)

Fw1=(9.4 kg)(9.8 m/s²)

Fw1=92.12 N

Finding Tension

T-Fw1=m1(a)

T-92.12 N =(9.4 kg)(2.8 m/s²)

T=26.32+92.12

T=118.44 N

Am I doing good so far?
