Anonymous

Question description

a 3.6 kg mass is released from rest and begins to slide down an 8.0 meter long frictionless incline (the incline is at an 17 degree angle). When the block has slid 5.3 meters, a person grabs a cord attached to the mass and begins to pull the cord parallel to the incline. By pulling on the cord, the person is able to slow the mass such that it comes to a stop just as it reaches the end of the 8 meter long incline. Assuming the tension in the cord is constant, find the tension in the cord.
