Two Packing crates of masses 10.0 kg and 5.00kg are connected by alight string that passes over a frictionless pulley as in Figure. The 5.00-kg crate lies on a smooth incline of angle 40.0 degrees. Find the acceleration of the 5.00-kg crate and the tension in the string.

Let's analyze this problem one chunk at the time. We'll Let:
m = 5kg
M = 10kg
For the 10kg mass:
Mg - tension = a(m + M)
the 5kg mass:
Since both equations equal a(m+M), you can set them equal:
After you find tension, you can substitute it back into one of the earlier equations to find a.

The drawing shows two strings that have the same lengthand the same linear density. The left end of each string is attached to a wall,while the right end passes over a pulley and is connected to objects of different weights(Wa and Wb). Different standing waves are set up on each string, but theirfrequencies are the same. If \(\displaystyle{W}_{{a}}={44}\ {N}\), what is \(\displaystyle{W}_{{b}}\).

A man with mass 70.0 kg stands on a platform withmass 25.0 kg. He pulls on the free end of a rope thatruns over a pulley on the ceiling and has its other end fastened tothe platform. The mass of the rope and the mass of the pulley canbe neglected, and the pulley is frictionless. The rope is verticalon either side of the pulley.
a) With what force does he have to pull so that he and theplatform have an upward acceleration of \(\displaystyle{1.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\)?
b) What is the acceleration of the rope relative to him?

A wagon with two boxes of Gold, having total mass 300 kg, is cutloose from the hoses by an outlaw when the wagon is at rest 50m upa 6.0 degree slope. The outlaw plans to have the wagon roll downthe slope and across the level ground, and then fall into thecanyon where his confederates wait. But in a tree 40m from thecanyon edge wait the Lone Ranger (mass 75.0kg) and Tonto (mass60.0kg). They drop vertically into the wagon as it passes beneaththem. a) if they require 5.0 s to grab the gold and jump out, willthey make it before the wagon goes over the edge? b) When the twoheroes drop into the wagon, is the kinetic energy of the system ofthe heroes plus the wagon conserved? If not, does it increase ordecrease and by how much?
