A 59-kg housepainter stands on a 16-kg aluminum platform. The platform is attached to a rope that passes through an overhead pulley, which allows the painter to raise herself and the platform. (Ignore the mass of the pulley and any friction in the pulley.)

(a) With what force F must she pull down on the rope to accelerate herself and the platform upward at a rate of 0.74 m/s2?

b) When her speed reaches 1.1 m/s, she pulls in such a way that she and the platform go up at a constant speed. What force is she exerting on the rope now? (Ignore the mass of the rope.)
