(b) What is the tension in the tow rope? (c) If the tow rope is cut at a distance D up the slope, what is the skiers speed when he is back at the bottom? Ignore friction. Problem 8 Two crates, one of mass m 1 the other of mass m 2 sit on the surface of a smooth frozen pond, with negligible friction. The crates are connected by a rope. A person pulls on mass m 2 using a second rope, and this gives the crates an acceleration a . (a) Draw free body diagrams for both crates. (b) What is the tension in the rope the person is pulling on? (c) What is the tension in the rope connecting the crates? 1...
