Problem No. 2 
Given:
Blocks A and B are connected by a cable that has a length of L = 10 meterswith the cable being pulled over a pulley at C. Block A is constrained to movealong a guide in such a way that the its acceleration is a function of the position s
A
as:a

)with the speed of A being zero when s
A
= 0. Block B is constrained to movealong a surface that is perpendicular to the guide for A. Assume that the cabledoes not stretch or go slack during the motion of the system. Also assume thatthe pulley C is small compared to the other dimensions of the problem.
Find:
