Position coordinates (sA and sB) are defined from fixed datum lines, measured along the direction of motion of each block. What assumptions do you need to make? Example Describe the relationship between the position, velocity and acceleration of blocks A and B. Notes: • sB is only defined to the center of the pulley above block B, since this block moves with the pulley. • h is a constant • red colored segments remain constant length Procedure These These procedures can be used to relate the dependent motion of particles moving along rectilinear paths (only the magnitudes of velocity and acceleration change, not their line of direction). 1. Define position coordinates from fixed datum lines, along the path of each particle. Different datum lines can be used for each particle. 2. Relate the position coordinates to the cord length. Segments of cord that do not change in length during the motion may be left out. 3. If a system contains more than one cord, relate the position of a point on one cord to a point on another cord. Separate equations are written for each cord. 4. Differentiate the position coordinate equation(s) to relate velocities and accelerations. Keep track of signs! Example: In the system shown, the motion of mass mA and mB are constrained by the pulley mechanism. In addition, an intermediate slider (of negligible mass) moves at a constant rate, vc. Find an expression relating the velocity and acceleration of mB to mA. xA mA vc xB mB Newton’s 2nd Law: Cartesian Coordinates Example: A collar of mass m1 slides on a rod. A cable connects the collar to a second mass, m2, through the cable‐ pulley arrangement shown. 0 Determine the instantaneous acceleration of the collar m2 m1 g 45 2‐22 Problem 14.57 Winch retracts cable at a rate of 1 m/s. Crate mass is 120 kg. Assume crate remains flat on ground and slides on the ground with k=0.24. • What is cable tension?

What would be the deceleration and force felt for deceleration distances of =0.03, 0.06, and 0.09m? What would be the duration of the collision? What is the Gadd severity index?
