A pulley is massless and frictionless. 3 kg, 2 kg (on the left), and 6 kg (on the right) masses are suspended What is the tension T1 in the string be- tween the two blocks on the left-hand side of the pulley? Can I solve this like if it was two masses? My prof gave an example ...

Christian is making a Tyrolean traverse. That is, he traverses a chasm by stringing a rope between a tree on one side of the chasm and a tree on the opposite side, 25 m away. The rope must sag sufficiently so it won't break. Assume the rope can provide a tension force of up to...

A 6.0kg box is on a frictionless 45∘ slope and is connected via a massless string over a massless, frictionless pulley to a hanging 2.4kg weight. What is the tension in the string if the 6.0kg box is held in place, so that it cannot move? If the box is then released, ...

A mass hangs on the end of a massless rope. The pendulum is held horizontal and released from rest. When the mass reaches the bottom of its path it is moving at a speed v = 2.3 m/s and the tension in the rope is T = 22.4 N. Now a peg is placed 4/5 of the way down the pendulum’...
