Size:  361.4 KB hi for part c of this question, I thought that the string is modelled as a light string since the string does not have any mass however the only answer is that the string is inextensible. But surely it's also light right ?

    Also for part e the last part , I don't get why fr would also decreed the reaction force. Fr does not act veritically . It is parallel to the plane. I thought adding fr would only decrease the weight but I don't get why it decrease R too..... Thanks.

    Yes, the string would need to be light too.

    Also for part e the last part , I don't get why fr would also decreed the reaction force. Fr does not act veritically . It is parallel to the plane. I thought adding fr would only decrease the weight but I don't get why it decrease R too..... Thanks.
    Perpendicular (to plane) component of Reaction = mg cos 25

    Since m decreases, so does the perpendicular component of the reaction.

    Component parallel to the plane remains the same.

    So, overall, the magnitude of the reaction decreases.

    What paper is this from? Is it a real exam one?

    Oh okay. Is this right -light string =tension is constant on string. Smooth pulley=no friction on pulley. Inextensible string = same acceleration on string. This is from the Solomon paper thanks.

    with regards to assumptions, what would one say when it asks what does it being a particle mean? can you just say that its force/weight acts from one exact pinpoint kind of thing
