Unformatted text preview: Answer T = ± g 7 ² ( m a-4 m ) Problem 3. (Problem 2.16 from Gross et al). A cable (length l , weight negligible) is attached to to walls at A and B . A cube (weight G ) on a frictionless pulley (radius negligible) is suspended by the cable. Find distance d of the cube from the left side in the equilibrium posi-tion and calculate the force S in the cable Answer S = Gl 2 √ l 2-a 2 d = a 2 ³ 1-b √ l 2-a 2 ´ 1...
