Unformatted text preview: the pulley. Also, h is a constant no matter how the blocks move. Finally the red colored segments of the cable remain constant as the blocks move. L = 2s B + h + s A + constant Where L is the total cord length and “constant” equals the lengths of the red segments . 2v B = v A 0=2 v B +v A 2a B = a A Problem can also be worked by defining the position of mass B from the bottom pulley instead of the top pulley. The position, velocity, and acceleration relations then become 2(h – s B ) + h + s A = L and 2v B = v A 2a B = a A Sketch:...
