## Two Blocks and Two Pulleys

Learning Goal:
To be able to calculate the tension in a string and the acceleration of each of two blocks in a two-pulley system.
As shown, a block with mass m1 is attached to a massless ideal string. The string wraps around a massless pulley and then wraps around a second massless
pulley that is attached to a block with mass m2 and ultimately attaches to a wall. The whole system is frictionless.

## Part A - Tension in the string

Given that a2 is the magnitude of the horizontal acceleration of the block with mass m2 , what is T , the tension in the string?
Express the tension in terms of m2 and a2 .

## Use Newton's second law,

F2 = m2 a2
where F2 is the sum of the forces acting on the block with mass m2 . Recall that the whole system is frictionless.

Hint 2. Identify the force diagram for the block with mass m2
Which figure correctly illustrates the forces acting on the block with mass m2 ?

The vectors n, W, T, and f k denote the normal force, the gravitational force, the tension in
the string, and the frictional force, respectively.

## Express the acceleration's magnitude, a1 , in terms of m1 , g, and T .

Hint 1. Which physical principle to use

## Part C - Relative acceleration between blocks

Given the magnitude a1 of the acceleration of the block with mass m1 , find a2 , the magnitude of the horizontal acceleration of the block with mass m2 .
Express a2 in terms of a1 .

Hint 1. How to solve the problem using the string constraint (with calculus)

Define y1 (t) and x2 (t) as the vertical coordinate (as a function of time) of the block with mass m1 and the horizontal coordinate (as a function of time)
of the block with mass m2 , respectively. The length of the string, l, is

## l = 2x2 (t) + y1 (t) + C

where C is a constant that accounts for the length of the wound portions of the string and the
length of string between the y axis and the wall. By differentiating this equation twice with
respect to time, you will obtain the relationship between a1 and a2 . The variables C and l
vanish during differentiation.

Hint 2. How to solve the problem using your intuition (without calculus)

While the block of mass m1 descends a height h, the other block moves only half of h. Hence, at each instant, v1 = 2v2 , where v1 and v2 are the
speeds of the blocks with masses m1 and m2 , respectively.

expression for a1 .

Hint 1. How to approach the problem

Set up and solve an equation that relates the two distances. Pick a datum that is fixed in space, then relate all changing rope lengths to that datum.

Notice that the length of the segment between the ceiling bracket and the datum remains constant
when the system is in motion; the same is true for the segment parallel to the ramp between the
top pulley and the datum (provided the mass does not move up far enough to reach the datum).

## Equations of Motion: Cylindrical Coordinates

Learning Goal:
To be able to analyze the motion of a particle using the equations of motion in cylindrical coordinates.
Cylindrical, or polar, coordinates are useful for describing the motion of particles that involve angular positions and radial distances. When the forces acting on a
particle are along the unit vectors ur , u , and uz , the scalar equations of motion are

Fr = mar
F = ma
Fz = maz
where m is the particle's mass and ar , a , and az are the accelerations in the r (radial), (transverse), and z directions, respectively. If the particle only moves in
the r plane, then only the first two equations are used to describe the motion.

Part A
A particle P moves along a curve. Its position is described by the three cylindrical coordinates: r, , and z. Although the components of the velocity and
acceleration (in rectangular coordinates) are the first and second time derivatives of the rectangular coordinates x, y, and z, this is not the case in cylindrical
coordinates. Match the appropriate component equations to the appropriate targets to complete the equations for the position vector, r P , the velocity vector, v,
and the acceleration vector, a. The terms ur , u, and uz are the unit vectors in the r, , and z directions, respectively. The terms r , , and z are the first time
derivatives of r, , and z, respectively. The terms r , , and z are the second time derivatives of r, , and z, respectively.
Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets.

Part B

As shown, a cam has a shape that is described by the function r = r0 (2.00 cos ), where r0 = 2.40ft .
A slotted bar is attached to the origin and rotates in the horizontal plane with a constant angular velocity of 0.425radians/s . The bar moves a roller weighing
32.3lb along the cam's perimeter. A spring holds the roller in place; the spring's spring constant is 0.527lb/ft . The friction in the system is negligible. When =
124 , what are Fr and F , the magnitudes of the cylindrical components of the total force acting on the roller?
Express your answers numerically in pounds to three significant figures separated by a comma.

r = r0 0 2 cos()

ar = 2r0 0 2 (cos() 1)

Fr ,F = 1.36,0.721 lb

## All attempts used; correct answer displayed

In cylindrical coordinates, the r component is positive when directed away from the origin and negative when directed toward the origin. The negative value
for Fr , therefore, means that the component of the force in the r direction is toward point O.

Part C
What are Ft and N , the magnitudes of the tangential force, Ft, and the normal force, N, acting on the roller by the path when = 124 ?
Express your answers numerically in pounds to three significant figures separated by a comma.
Hint 1. How to approach the problem
