A rope is 5 meters long and hangs over the edge of a well. It has a bucket of water weighted 20 kilograms attached to one end. For Simplicity, use g=10N/kg

Suppose the rope has a uniform density of [tex]\rho[/tex] = 1kg/m

2. Relevant equations

W=[tex]\int[/tex] F(x)xdx

3. The attempt at a solution

I could not figure out what the force would be I would think it would be (Mrope+Mbucket)g

Mass of the rope would be ([tex]\rho[/tex])(v)=Mrope
