72) Consider the following figure. A man sits in a pan and tries to raise himself by pulling the rope downwards. Will he able to raise himself up? Explain.

Dear Student,

Please find below the solution of your asked query:

Yes , if there is friction in between the rope and the pulley, the man will be able to pull himself up because when he applies force to raise himself his downward slide will be opposed by the frictional force acting in between the rope and the pulley and by and by he will succeed in raising himself.

Hope this information clears your doubts about the topic.

Looking forward to hear from you again!!
