Problem 42P

In Example 6-6 (Connected Blocks), suppose m1 and m2 are both increased by a factor of 2. (a) Does the acceleration of the blocks increase, decrease, or stay the same? (b) Does the tension in the string increase, decrease, or stay the same?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 42P

Step 1 of 3</p>

We are required to compare the acceleration of the system and tension in the string when each mass is increased by two times from previous values.

Step 2 of 3</p>

Part a

From the example 6-6,

The acceleration of the blocks,

The new masses,

Therefore, the new acceleration is,

Therefore, the new value of acceleration stays the same as the previous value.

Step 3 of 3
