Lecture 5 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 Pulley Example Two boxes are connected by a string over a frictionless pulley. Box 1 has mass 1.5 kg, box 2 has a mass of 2.5 kg. Box 2 starts from rest 0.8 meters above the table, how long does it take to hit the table. 1 2 1) T - m 1 g = m 1 a 1 2) T - m 2 g = -m 2 a 1 using a 1 = -a 2 2) T = m 2 g -m 2 a 1 1) m 2 g -m 2 a 1 - m 1 g = m 1 a 1 a 1 = (m 2 – m 1 )g / (m 1 +m 2 ) 1 T m 1 g 2 T m 2 g Compare the acceleration of boxes 1 and 2 A) |a 1 | > |a 2 | B) |a 1 | = |a 2 | C) |a 1 | < |a 2 | y x
