In a rescue scene during the 911 crisis, a helicopter of mass 6000kg accelerates upward at the rate of 0.50ms^-1 while lifting a 2500kg piece of concrete what is the tension in the cable attaching the concrete to the helocopter...

    Is the upward force mass x acceleration i.e 6000 X 0.5

    saikam has the correct approach, remember F=ma

    is the tension 25750 thanks. T-Mg= Ma T-(2500*9.8)= 2500(0.5) I guess the acceleration is equal for both masses.

    ignore the helicopter for the moment and look at the free body diagram, what forces are creating tension in the rope and what direction are they acting in?
