weight in buckets is greater than weight of table


and i genius physicist yet?

Table is supported by tension in the cables created by the weight of the buckets. Buckets are held up by natural force exerted by the table. Total tension equals combined mass of all 4 buckets times acceleration of gravity, which all equals natural force of table acting on all buckets. Net force is equal to 0 newtons.   
   
This isn't ******* physics. Physics hasn't even made it to second base with Tumblr in this picture. Hasn't even taken it out to dinner. Forces ************ do you speak them.

Agreed. It's actually very simple construction. It's like a evenly scaled weight with table on one side and buckets on other.

True, you could add a few grams to the table and eventually the buckets should rise higher and the table will lower.

"This isn't ******* physics"     
so I'm guessing they don't teach forces and anything related to gravity in physics all of a sudden? pretty sure it's physics......

This is physics, but it is not so mindblowing that I want to dispose of my undergarments, spread my asscheeks, and say "ravage me, you magnificent BEAST."

It is not ******* physics. It's more like "Huh, that's a pretty neat application of tension and weight" physics. I'd probably shake the hand of this physics, maybe give it a peck on the cheek. But I wouldn't **** it. It's liiiike a 6/10 would build if I got bored physics.

Notice how the strings are taught with weight. What you're witnessing is equilibrium; the weight of the table is being suspended by the greater force of the buckets resting on top, with the strings serving as the counter balance.
>But how 2 science?
Imagine that the buckets are in fact, NOT resting on the table. Instead, they are hanging to the sides. The table would rise and the buckets would fall, until one reached the ceiling or one reached the floor. They are both trying to fall down, but the buckets are heavier than the table, and the table is connected via pulley to the buckets. So what's it doing? The heavier buckets are raising the table to meet... the bottom of the buckets. An artificial ceiling. The buckets and the table are both hindering their own progress by simply being in the way of each other.

So the ultimate question is , what is the least amount of weight that the buckets can be to reach this state ? This is totaly a guess , but i feel like each bucket should be 1/4 of the weight of the table .

4*mb*g*sin(phi) >= mt*g
->
mb = [mt*sin(phi)]/4

it's

its also possible to have the buckets weigh more than the total weight of the table its just a matter of will the a strings hold b rings on the ceiling hold and c will the table be able to withstand the pressure of all buckets til it breaks.

Seriously, this is retarded. The table is held up by the SCREWS ATTACHED TO THE ROPES in the center. If you put the buckets on the floor, the table will still be "held up, just slightly higher. The table is just stopping the buckets from hitting the floor, with them equalizing weight on the corners so none fall off. They're in no way "holding it up", the screws that are SCREWED INTO the table, attached to the ropes, are doing that. I don't understand why this is interesting. Because it's not tipping? Has no one built a tower out of Dominos or Jenga pieces? Am I the only one that isn't amused by this at all? What the ****...

it would be the same if they were tied off to holes in the table itself, **** off

the only thing I heard was the rhyme: "the Table would rise and the buckets would fall, until one reaches the ceiling and one reaches the floor" Yes this rhymes to me and I can't get it out of my head

So it's a table held up by the buckets resting on it.

for anyone confused, think of it this way:

1) the table lays on the floor, connected to the strings which are in turn connected to the buckets

2) each bucket is being held up in place by someone, so each line is slack.

3) each person releases the buckets at the same time. Newton intensifies.

4) as the buckets fall under gravity, the table, which is connected to the strings, is being pulled up by those strings. so, the table is being pulled up due to the force of tension by the strings.

5) the buckets then each meet the surface of the table, and the force of tension, which is equal to the force of gravity in this system, means that the opposing forces of the buckets and the table cause on equilibrium in the position stated in the picture.

6) considering that the table must rise to the buckets, and the force of tension causing the table to rise is equal to that of the combined gravitational downward force of the buckets, the force needed to be overcome for this equilibrium to be possible is the downward force of gravity on the table. As such this will work so long as the total mass of the 4 buckets exceeds the mass of the table.

The buckets are weights holding up the table with the string and pulleys. If you think this is some feat in engineering, you're either ridiculously easy to impress or cognitively impaired.
