A 100kg mass is connected to a 200kg mass by a massless rope. The two masses rest on a frictionless surface. A (massless)rope is then attached to the 200kg mass, and is pulled. The two mass system accelerates. What is the relationship between the two tensions?

_THANK YOU

  • Physics -

    The tension on the pulling rope is moving 300kg,the massless rope between the two is pulling 100kg. Sounds like tension is 3:1 ratio

    Thanks, what a kick-mass answer!
