Okay guys, best thing to do with this is not to over complicate it so you do not get confused...

Here is a picture of a pulley with 2 attached particles of mass 4kg and 5kg, if the acceleration is 1.09 meters per second per second what is the tension?

Using either of the 2 formulas

If M = largest particle and m = smallest particle

g = gravity which is a constant = 9.8(1)

M x g - M x a = T

m x g + m x a = T

5kg x 9.8N - 5kg x 1.09 = 43.6N

4kg x 9.8N + 4kg x 1.09 = 43.6N

This is too much for me. lol :)

ReplyDeletevery interesting read! Any tips how to memorize it?

ReplyDeleteWell understanding it + spamming questions works... Saying it to yourself before you go to bed several times and recalling it helps a lot I find..

ReplyDeletePicture, great

ReplyDeletesum - wut ?

Man I do not feel like looking into how to answer this

ReplyDeleteSeems like somewhat practical knowledge.

ReplyDeleteI kind of understand the formula, but nothing behind it :(

ReplyDeleteDamn i hate physics, actually math in general.

ReplyDeleteoh wow im so bad at this :/

ReplyDeletenice blog

loved mechanics in college, following.

ReplyDeleteinteresting

ReplyDeleteI was surprised I actually understood that.

ReplyDeleteI feel a little... bit.. smarter !

ReplyDeleteI feel confused :D

ReplyDeletehehe physics

ReplyDeletegot that

ReplyDeleteinteresting stuff, wish i was as smart as you :P

ReplyDeletethis is too complicated... I'm stoned.

ReplyDeleteLot's of maths and physics and I have a Calculus II examam on wednesday!
