Problem 28E

Your instructor challenges you and your friend to each pull on a pair of scales attached to the ends of a horizontal rope, in tug-of-war fashion, so that the readings on the scales will differ. Can this be done? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution Step 1 of 1 No, it can not be achieved. As, it is impossible for one end of the rope to be under greater tension than the other end because the readings on the scale can never be different since Newton’s Third Law says that every action force has an equal and opposite reaction force. Since,for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.The scale readings will always be the same and it cannot be different.

Step 2 of 1
