The total length of the cable is constant and given by

The velocity of bale B (up) is given by

Now we have to write (3) in terms of time, so we have to determine

We are given
a

same as

x

.
Integration w.r.t. time gives
D

x

.
But the tractor starts from rest, so
D
=0.
Integration
one more time gives
E
t
c
x

=

.
We can say that the tractor starts at
x
=0 when
t
=0, so
E
=0.
If we plug these relations into (3), we get the vertical velocity of bale B as a function of time:
