So I got a question
One 3.5-kg paint bucket is hanging by a massless cord from another 3.5-kg pain bucket, aslo hanging by a massless cord
if the buckets are at rest, what is the tension in each cord?
How do I do this is this just the normal or what I do not understand how you do this problem
also the second question
If the two buckets are pulled upward with an accelration of 1.6 s^-2 m by the upper ocrd, calculate the tnesion in each cord.
The tension on any rope holding masses is the weight of the masses below it, and adding the masses*acceleration
