A block of mass 21.5 kg supported by a vertical massless cable is initially at rest. The block is then pulled upward with a constant acceleration of 3.79 m/s2. what is the tension in the cable? what is the magnitude of the net force acting on the mass? what is the speed of the block after is has traveled 1.17m?
