1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A load of bricks with mass m_1 = 14.0 kg hangs from one end of a rope that passes over a small, frictionless pulley. A counterweight of mass m_2 = 28.4 kg is suspended from the other end of the rope, as shown in the figure. The system is released from rest. What is the magnitude of the upward acceleration of the load of bricks? What is the tension in the rope while the load is moving? 2. Relevant equations w=mg f=ma 3. The attempt at a solution Ok first I drew a diagram, then I stated that m1 = 14.0 kg m2 = 28.4 kg m1: w=ma w = 137.2 m2: w=ma w = 278.32 Now I got the w of both. What do I do know? I am lost. I do believe that I must used the Sum of Fy. PS: I passed my first exam.
