A 12 lb bowling ball is suspended by a cord and leaning against a frictionless wall as shown (see diagram). The diameter of the ball is 30 cm and the line segment of AB is 60 cm.
a) Make a free-body diagram
b) Determine the tension T in the cable
c) Determine the reaction at point B if:
i) the system is at rest
ii) the system accelerates to the right at 2 m/s^2
iii) the system accelerates to the left at 2 m/s^2
See attached file.
Please show work.
Provides steps necessary to determine the tension and reaction, as well as provides a free-body diagram.
