Unformatted text preview: the unknown mass in the middle must be m 4 = 20.3 kg – 10.3 kg = 10.0 kg, and the tension in the cord above it must be enough to support m 4 + m 5 = (10.0 kg + 5.50 kg) = 15.5 kg, so T 4 = (15.5 kg)(9.80 m/s 2 ) = 152 N. Another way to analyze this is to examine the forces on m 3 ; one of the downward forces on it is T 4 . 91. (a) The bottom cord is only supporting m 2 = 4.5 kg against gravity, so its tension is T 2 = m 2 g = (4.5 kg)(9.8 m/s 2 ) = 44 N....
