Unformatted text preview: 300 mm, determine the mass m of each block if their weight is the same. Neglect the weight of the pulleys and cords. The springs are unstretched when d =2m and they move only vertically. b) Now, if we reduce the weight of the block on the left side by half, calculate the angle ABC. The spring deflections will be in their axial direction and they can rotate about their basements....
