Question: 2 the diagram shows a circular drum of radius 80...

Question details

2. The diagram shows a circular drum of radius 8.0 cm around which a rope is wound. The drum is turned by means of a handle of length 40 cm to which a force of 180 N is applied at right angles to the handle. 8.0 cm 40 cm Handle 180 N Calculate the tension Tin the rope. A porson is polling a boat on to a trailar using the dium system, known as a winch, as shown in the diagram below. The person is exerting a force of 180 N on the handle. Winch Explain why the force the rope exerts on the boat a be less in pacicethen the tension you have calculated above.
