lower cable is horizontal. The pulley has negligible weight, and the link connecting the pulley to the weight has
negligible weight*. Friction at the pins can be neglected. Given these assumptions, and recalling the result from
LEX 0, Problem 6 that shows the tension is the same on either side of such a pulley, draw the FBD of a
combination of the weight, the link, the pulley and the portion of the cable that is in contact with the pulley.
