    A pulley with one end connected to a 300 gm block and the other connected to an unknown weight(M) has a negligible friction. The tension in the string is given as 2 nt. Determine:

    (a) the acceleration of the 300 gm block.
    (b) the force acting on the 300 gm block.
    (c) weight of M in Newton's
    (d) value of the unknown mass M in gms.

    Because, m1 = 300 gm = 0.3 kg
    m2 = M =?
    let, m1> m2

    m1*g - T = m1*a ....(1)
    T - m2*g = m2*a ....(2)
    where, a is ...

    Solution Summary

    A pulley system connected to a 300 gm block is analyzed to find the tension. The acceleration of the 300 gm block is computed. With good explanations, the calculations solve the problem.
