We have to find T1 and T2
From right to left objects are: A B C
The Attempt at a Solution
Okay. So I found acceleration of whole system:
a= 40/7 ms-2
Now, finding T1 is fairly simple:
T1=200/7 Newtons (Let's not reduce it right now to decimals)
Now, T2. This is where the problem arises.
T2 can be calculated by the difference of the forces on object A.
Force on A= 10kg*(40/7)
= 400/7 Newtons
T2 will be:
1000/7 Newtons= T2
1000/7N= 142.75 Newtons.
Is this answer correct? Please tell me. I'm very confused.
Thank you for reading.
