## anonymous 4 years ago Two masses are supported by a cable. The masses are connected using a light rope (no weight). If an upward force of 64N is applied, determine 1. the acceleration of the system. 2. The tension force in the rope. I have the acceleration (3m/s^2) but cant figure out the tension force!

first draw a free body diagram for the rope . |dw:1328754608798:dw| then write the newton's second law $T-mg=0 \rightarrow 64 - 49 = 15N$
