# Challenger 1

gjl Initially system is at rest.

If the mass at angle is released from rest then what will be the velocity of the other mass when the tilted mass passes through the dotted line.

Assume string to be ideal.

You can use variables as per requirement (but predefine them)

Question pick up from Introduction to classical mechanics by David Morin Pg. V-29, 2nd problem

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
