1. ## Maximum permissible mass

Figure 5-60 shows a section of a cable-car system. The maximum permissible mass of each car with occupants is 2500 kg. The cars, riding on a support cable, are pulled by a second cable attached to the support tower on each car. Assume that the cables are taut and inclined at angle θ = 38°. What is the difference in tension between adjacent sections of pull cable if the cars are at the maximum permissible mass and are being accelerated up the incline at 0.77 m/s2?
