Holding a long rope by its upper end, you lower it onto a scale. The rope has a mass of 0.169 kg per meter of length, and is lowered onto the scale at the constant rate of 1.38 m/s. Calculate the thrust exerted by the rope as it lands on the scale.
What does the scale read when 0.233 kg of rope is on the scale (corresponding to a weight of 2.29 N)?
