A block of mass M = 6.755 kg is pulled along a horizontal frictionless surface by a rope of mass m = 0.592 kg, as shown in Fig. 5-63. A horizontal force = 41.5 N is applied to one end of the rope. Assume that the rope only sags a negligible amount. Find (a) the acceleration of rope and block, (b) the force on the block from the rope, and (c) the tension in the rope at its midpoint.
