48. REASONING At first glance there seems to be very little information given. However, it is enough. In part a of the drawing the bucket is hanging stationary and, therefore, is in equilibrium. The forces acting on it are its weight and the two tension forces from the rope. There are two tension forces from the rope, because the rope is attached to the bucket handle at two places. These three forces must balance, which will allow us to determine the weight of the bucket. In part b of the drawing, the bucket is again in equilibrium, since it is traveling at a constant velocity and, therefore, has no acceleration. The forces acting on the bucket now are its weight and a single tension force from the rope, and they again must balance. In part
