A conveyor belt carrying aggregate is illustrated in the figure below. A

motor turns the top roller at a constant speed, and the remaining

rollers are allowed to spin freely. The belt is inclined at an angle θ. To keep the belt in tension a weight of mass m is suspended from the belt, as shown.

Find the point of maximum tension in the belt. You don’t have to calculate it, just find the location and give a reason for it.
