Rank Tension and Acceleration

Animation A Animation B Animation C Animation D Animation E Animation F

A 10 kg mass is attached via a massless string over a massless pulley to a hand (position is in meters, time is in seconds, and therefore v is in meters/second). The masses in each animation are identical. Try to do this problem conceptually.

Question #1 Rank the animations according to the acceleration of the mass from greatest to least (positive is up). Ties in () please.

Question #2 Rank the animations according to the tension in the rope from greatest to least (positive is up). Ties in () please.
