STEM Lessons for College Students

5.15 .. Atwood’s Machine. A 15.0-kg load of bricks hangs from one end of a rope that passes over a small frictionless pulley. A 28.0-kg counterweight is suspended from the other end of the rope (Fig. E5.15). The system is released from rest. (a) Draw two free-body diagrams one for the load of bricks and one for the counterweight. (b) What is the magnitude of the upward acceleration of the load of bricks? (c) What is the tension in the rope while the load is moving? How does the tension compare to the weight of the load of bricks? To the weight of the counterweight?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
