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

they have reaction forces between them

 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

 >R >p  P + r = m(rope)a

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

I didn't draw the normal or perpendicular forces

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?
