Question: q2 not from book for the pulley system shown below...

Question details

Q2. Not from book. For the pulley system shown below, determine the vertical accelerations of the two masses A and B, whose masses are, respectively, mi and m2. The pulleys and ropes are massless, frictionless and the roles are thin and inextensible. Given m-10kg, m2- 10 kg, and g 9.81 m/s. Be clear in your notation whether downwards is positive or negative. Hint: In addition to FBD and F ma, you will need a relation between the accelerations of A and B due to their being connected. Recall constrained motion and we derived this exact relation in class. Re-do the derivation here and use it oi
