Find the tension on each thread. 2 1 1 2 : cos30 cos40 0 : sin 40 sin30 0 x T T y T T mg ° − ° = °+ °− = 2 equations with 2 unknowns (T 1 , T 2 ) 2 1 1 1 1 6 2 2 cos40 cos30 cos40 sin 40 sin30 cos30 sin 40 cos40 tan30 (30 10 kg)(9.8 m/s ) 0.27 mN sin 40 cos40 tan30 cos40 (0.27 mN) 0.24 mN cos30 T T T T mg mg T T ° = ° ° °+ ° = ° = °+ ° ° × = = °+ ° ° ° = = ° b. The ceiling happens to be the ceiling of an elevator that starts moving up with an acceleration of 2.5 m/s 2 . Find the new tensions on the threads. The free-body diagram is the same, but now the acceleration in the vertical direction is not zero: 2 1 1 2 : cos30 cos40 0 : sin 40 sin30 x T T y T T mg ma ° − ° = °+ °− = 40 ° 30 ° x y mg T 1 T 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
