Problem 2R

Nellie Newton hangs motionless by one hand from a clothesline. Which side of the line, a or b, has the greater a. horizontal component of tension? b. vertical component of tension? c. tension?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Nellie Newton hangs motionless by one hand from a clothesline. Which side of the line, a or b, has the greater . The clothesline acts like a pair of rope that make different angles with vertical There are three forces acting on Nellie 1.Weight 2.tension in left hand rope 3..tension in left hand rope Because of different angles, different tension will occur in each side of the rope Nellies hang in equilibrium weight must be separated by two rope tensions,which must add vertically to be equal and opposite weight . a. horizontal component of tension a=b b. vertical component of tension a>b c. Tension a>b
