Unformatted text preview: Cylinder A and block B are attached to cords wrapped around the pulleys as shown. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block B and the surface is 0.25. The system is released from rest. Use the work-energy method to find: the velocity of cylinder A when it strikes the ground, then the total distance that block B travels before coming to rest. Note that once the mass A strikes the ground it no longer participates in the work or energy portions of the problem. Problem 17.11 of Vector Mechanics for Engineers - Dynamics, 7 th Ed....
