LOL, do it backwards

F = net force on each link
so
force on bottom link = F = m a
F = .1 * 2.5 = .25 N on link 5
that is the answer to part f

NOW, net one up, link 4, also has net force of .25 N so force up -.25 = m a = .25
so .25 more = .50N on link 4

In fact the net force on EVERY link is .25N so each force up goes up by .25

link 3 -- .5 + .25 = .75
link 2 -- .75+.25 = 1.00
link 1 -- 1 + .25 = 1.25 but that is the total (answer to (e)

thanks for the help but i have worked it out but for the forces on the links it is F=m(a+g)+ F(previous link)

Damon that would work if there was no friction, no gravity, no transfer of energy/work throughout the particle.

Because they are linked, and hanging vertically, there is a few extra forces that need to be taken into account.

LOL, Damon. The only thing you did backwards was yourself! Mad kudos to Oliver and Sarah. And Damon, please refrain from being so mean... People are here to get help.
