b) if the lift is moving upward with acceleration a
c) if the lift is moving downward with acceleration a
d) if the lift is falling freely
e) if the lift is moving upward with constant velocity
f) if the lift is moving downward with constant velocity
Question: 7

Show that at any instant during the falling of string, the total force on the surface of the table is three times the weight of the part of the string lying on the surface
Question: 8
 Three blocks A, B,C are such as
  M1=2 kg , M2=3 kg , M3=6 kg
