Solution Preview

Assuming the usual assumptions, that there is not friction, massless rope and spring, the rope must have the same tension T in all its parts. Therefore 2T from the two branches of the rope ...

Solution Summary

The solution assists with determining the tension in the rope and how far the spring constant has stretched.
