1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data PLEASE click on attached picture below: What can be concluded about the tension in the cords holding the balls stationary in Systems I and II when both systems are at rest? In both systems the mass of the larger ball M2 is exactly twice the mass of the smaller ball M1.Assume all cord lengths are equal (L1,L2,L3,L4). Assume both systems are at rest. Assume no frictional forces. 2. Relevant equations Sum of forces=ma T-mg=ma 3. The attempt at a solution At looking at the picture I figured T2>T4 because the mass is twice as big. However what I don't understand is why T1=T3? I am completely lost and need a conceptual understanding of this. side note: I did not use the Tensions equation because I think its more of a conceptual question however if it can be used please show me how to incorporate. Thank You in advance physics masters!
