Tension question

  1. Sep 27, 2011 #1
    the question is form an online assignment

    i have already spent 5/6 tries...so this try is crucial to get the right answer

    from my understanding 1 is true and 2 is equal to because the acceleration and v are the same throughout the system. For tension i think at point B it is greater than point A because it has to pull higher mass. I need some reassurance because this is my last try. would be very helpful if someone could help me out. TY

    Your answers sound correct to me. Note you have "true" in the second one right now, but what you said about "equal" seems correct.
