Pulley/Cable Problem
Can someone show a step by step solution of this problem? Thanks!
The pulley/cable system shown in the attachment is connected to a mass, m, which is accelerating downward at an acceleration of 8 ft/s2, despite the force in the cable, F = 100 lbs. What is the mass, m, of the object?
a = 8 ft/s2
F = 100 lbs
m = ?
