Kinetics : Connected Particles

Pulleys Problems involve two weights either side of a pulley. The heavier weight pulls on the lighter causing both to accelerate in one direction with a common acceleration.

Example A 3 kg mass and a 5 kg mass are connected over a pulley by a light inextensible string. When the masses are released from rest, what is: i) the acceleration of each mass? ii) the tension in the string (Take g=9.8 ms-2 . Answer to 2 d.p.) i)

Example A car of mass 600 kg towes a trailer of mass 250 kg in a straight line using a rigid towebar. The resistive force on the car is 200N. The resistive force on the trailer is 80N. If the forward thrust produced by the engine of the car is 800 N, what is(to 3 d.p.) i) the acceleration of the car ii) the tension in the towe-bar i) looking at all the forces on the car and trailer together

Inclined plane with pulley The pulley at the end just changes the direction of the force. problems involve the resolved component of the weight of the object down the plane.

Example A 2 kg mass on a smooth 30o plane is connected to a 5 kg mass by a light inextensible string passing over a pulley at the top of the plane. When the particles are released from rest the 2 kg mass moves up the plane. i) what is the acceleration of the 2 kg & 5 kg masses? ii) What is the tension in the string?
