Two mountain climbers are working their way up a glacier when one falls into a crevasse. The icy slope can be considered frictionless. Sue's (the one who fell) weight is pulling Paul up the 45 degree slope. If Sue's mass is 66 kg and if she falls 2 min 10 s (starting from rest), find (a) the tension in the rope and (b) Paul's mass.
