Unformatted text preview: gondola which is lifted to a height h at A . If it is released from rest and falls along the parabolic track, determine the speed at the instant y = d. Also determine the normal reaction of the tracks on the gondola at this instant. The gondola and passenger have a total weight W . Neglect the effects of friction. Given: W 500 lb = d 20 ft = h 120 ft = a 260 ft = 297...
