I have the following setup: The string of negligible mass, causing little friction, is shown in dark blue and is fixed at the red circle. The taut string is shown in light blue (with excess string ...
So this is a general force diagram of the system shown. My question is, according to the third law, if the block is exerting a force of magnitude mg on the thread in the down direction, then the ...
Below shown is a setup, and block B starts from rest and moves towards right with a constant acceleration. Does the acceleration differ for the blocks ? I am a bit confused because of the tricky ...
I'm trying to understand tension. So here it goes: I'll start from the beginning. Let's assume I'm in space and can move around and apply forces. Let's say a rope is attached to a body(which is in ...
If two ends of a rope are pulled with forces of equal magnitude and opposite direction, the tension at the center of the rope must be zero. True or false? The answer is false. I chose true though and ...
