Question

A box weighing 66.0 N66.0 \mathrm{~N} rests on a table. A rope tied to the box runs vertically upward over a pulley and a weight is hung from the other end (Fig. 4-37). Find the force that the table exerts on the box if the weight hanging on the other side of the pulley weighs 30.030.0$$\mathrm{~N}$.

Given the following mechanical system:

'slader'

Where it is known:

  • The weight of the box FGA=66.0 NF_{G_{A}}=66.0\mathrm{~N}.
  • The weight of the hanging weight FGB=30.0 NF_{G_{B}}=30.0\mathrm{~N}.

Required:

  • The force exerted by the table on the box FNAF{_{N_{A}}}.

It is important to wonder, what are the forces acting on the box and the hanging weight?
