6 Example At an airport, luggage is unloaded from a plane into the three cars of a luggage carrier. The acceleration of the carrier is 0.12 m/s 2 and friction is negligible. The coupling bars have negligible mass. By how much would the tension in each of the coupling bars change if 39 kg of luggage is removed from car 2 and placed in car 1?
