6.0 – Algebra Two blocks are connected by a very light string passing over a massless and frictionless pulley (Fig. E6.7). Traveling at a constant speed, the 20.0-N block moves 75.0 cm to the right and the 12.0-N block moves 75.0 cm downward.

Two blocks are connected by a very light string passing over a massless and frictionless pulley (Fig. E6.7). Traveling at a constant speed, the 20.0-N block moves 75.0 cm to the right and the 12.0-N block moves 75.0 cm downward. How much work is done (a) on the 12.0-N block by (i) gravity and (ii) the tension in the string? (b) How much work is done on the 20.0-N block by (i) gravity, (ii) the tension in the string, (iii) friction, and (iv) normal force? (c) Find the total work done on each block.
