Problem 1 Problem 1 A 1.81 kg mass is suspended from a string which is pulled upward. The mass accelerates upwards with an acceleration of 3.50 m/s 2 . What is the tension in the string?
Problem 1 - Solution Problem 1 - Solution A 1.81 kg mass is suspended from a string which is pulled upward. The mass accelerates upwards with an acceleration of 3.50 m/s 2 . What is the tension in the string? T ! mg = ma T = mg + ma = m a + g ( ) = 1.81 kg ( ) 3.50 m/s 2 + 9.81 m/s 2 ( ) T = 24.1 N
