Maximum Height of Object over a Pulley

Two objects with masses 5Kg and 2Kg hang 0.6m above the floor from the ends of a cord 6m long passing over a frictionless pulley. Both objects start from rest. Find the maximum height reached by the 2.00Kg object. Discussion: Set up : After the \(5Kg\) object reaches...

A Pulley System

One end of a string is attached to a rigid wall at point O, passes over a smooth pulley and carries a hanger S of mass M at its other end.  One end of a string is attached to a rigid wall at point O, passes over a smooth pulley and carries a hanger S of mass M at its...

Mass supported by a Hollow Cylinder

A mass m is supported by a massless string wound on a uniform hollow cylinder of mass m and radius R. If the string does not slip on the cylinder, with what acceleration will the mass fall on release? Solution: For the mass m, the force equation stands as:...

Masses over a frictionless pulley

Two bodies A and B hanging in air are tied to the ends of a string which passes over a frictionless pulley. The masses of the string and the pulley are negligible and the masses of two bodies are 2kg and 3kg respectively. (Assume g=\(10m/s^2\)). Body A moves upwards...
