Two identical objects are connected to each other by a rope as shown in the diagram. A second rope is connected to one of the objects. The masses of the ropes are negligible. A short time after constant force is applied to the end of the second rope, both objects uniformly accelerate in the direction of across a smooth surface. Tension is produced in the rope that the force is applied to, and tension is produced in the rope that connects the objects. Which of the following statements correctly represents the relationship between and ?
An object with a mass of 25 kg is at rest, suspended vertically from a platform by two ropes, as shown in the diagram. The masses of the ropes are negligible. What is the angle between the two ropes at the point that they connect to the object?
Find the acceleration of the objects.
