Problem 13E

Two 100-N weights are attached to a spring scale as shown. Does the scale read 0, 100, or 200 N, or does it give some other reading? (?Hint: Would it read any differently if one of the ropes were tied to the wall instead of to the hanging 100-N weight?)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

100 N, the same reading it would have if one of the ends were tied to the 100 N hanging weight. Although the net force on the system is zero, the tension in the...
