Two blocks with masses m 1 and m 2 are connected by a light string passing over a light frictionless pulley. Assume m 2 . m 1 . Determine the potential energy released by the system as block 2 starts from rest and falls by h /2: AB C Potential energy released m 2 gh /2 ( m 2 2 m 1 ) gh /2 m 1 gh /2 Hint: Remember that as block 2 descends by h /2, block 1 rises correspondingly by a height h /2. Explanation: When block 2 falls by a distance h /2, block 1 goes up by h /2. The potential energy lost by block 2 is m 2 gh /2. The potential energy gained by block 1 is m 1 gh /2. So the net potential energy lost is ( m 2 2 m 1 ) gh /2. Answer 5 B. Block 1 Block 2 m 1 m 2 h 1. Atwood Machine PhysiQuiz 59
Consider the mass–pulley system shown. Determine the distance d covered by the force F as it lifts the block by a height D x : AB C Distance of F d 5D x /2 d xd 5 2 D x Explanation: As the block is lifted by height D x , the length of each of the two strings supporting the moving pulley will be reduced by D x , so d 5 2 D x . Answer 5 C. Comment: Notice that conservation of energy implies that the increase of the potential energy equals the input mechanical energy: mg D x 5 F d 5 2 D x F. Solving for F gives F 5 mg /2. In other words, the applied force required is half of the weight.
