Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Carla on Friday, December 8, 2006 at 6:50am.

A stationary arrangement of two crayon boxes and three cords. Box A has a mass of 11.0kg and is on a ramp at angle =30.0 degrees; box B has a mass of 7.00 kg and hangs on a cord. The cord connected to Box A is parallel to the ramp which is frictionless (a) What is the tension in the upper cord, and (b) what angle does that cord make with the horizontal?



Let TA = tension force in the cord attached to block A.
TB = tension force in the cord attached to block B.
TC = tension force in the cord attached to ceiling.
= angle of cord attached to ceiling with the horizontal
= angle of ramp = 30 degrees

1.Ta-magsin
2.Tb-mbgsin=0
3.Tcsin=magsin+mbg
4.Tccos=magsin
5=T^2c(cos^2+sin^2)

that's what I know so far (on what equations to use for each step)



What is this Upper cord? Where is it attached?

Upper cord. I have a pic but this site but I can't because the site won't allow me to
