A cable is lifting a construction worker and a crate The weights of the worker and crate are 915 and 1430 N, respectively. The acceleration of the cable is 0.620 m/s2, upward.
what is the tension in the cable below the worker?
what is it above the worker?
How can the cable be below the worker if it is lifting him and a crate? Are there two cables? I don't get the picture.
it's one cable, with a crate tie at the bottom and a worker in the middle of the cable between the crate and whatever the top end is, and he is climbing upward with a=.620m/s^2
