    As the rope pulls the block, the block pulls back with equal force in the opposite direction. So I'll go with 2p. But I'm not sure of that.. Anyone?

    see just take mass of rope plus the block and then apply all formulas

    | r | <-------rope -------- | r | < --------block so r is the force exerted by the rope on the block r = m(block)a and from the rope equation

    f (force applied ) + r = m(rope)a now get r

    R is the reaction force or contact force

    Are we speaking of the force the rope is "feeling"?

    but it says "what will be the force by the rope ON THE BLOCK.. lol so I thought that means, what the block is feeling>>

    R is the force for the block from the rope

    now take a careful look the only force that rope and block have is the R so hence r is the one were looking for

    Is there a name for this type of problem so I can go concentrate on them?
