  1. 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.

  2. 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
