a carpenter of mass 50 kg is standing on a weighing machine placed in a lift of mass 20 kg.a light string is attached to the lift. the string passes over a smooth pulley and is attached to the lift and the other end is held by the carpenter.when carpenter keeps the lift moving upward with constant velocity, find-1. reading of the weighing machine2. net force on the man.3. net force on the weighing machine.4. tension of the string
Suppose T is the tension. Then weight on the weighing machine is m1g-T and now tension T is m2g+(m1g-T). Now equating We get 2T=m1g+m2g or . Now putting the values we will get T=35g. So weight on wighing machine is 15kg. So net force on the man is m1g-T=15g. So the net force on the wighing machine is also same as net force on the man which is again 15g.
