Unformatted text preview: bricks? To the weight of the counterweight?
The mass of the load of bricks
kg
The mass of the counterweight
kg
Acceleration due to gravity
= acceleration of the system
(B) Since
we have:
For the frictionless pulley, T=T’ [Free Body for bricks]
(B) Adding these equations, we get: (C) The tension (T) in the rope
while the load is moving: [Free Body Counter] (ii) Weight of bricks (ii) Weight of bricks So tension (T) is
than the weight of the
counterweight
. So tension (T) is
than the weight of the
counterweight
