In the arrangement shown in figure, the mass of the body A is 4 times that of body B. The height h=20 cm . At a certain instant, the body B is released and the system is set in motion. What is the maximum height (in cm), the body B will go up? Assume enough space above B and A sticks to the ground.

Can anyone help me to understand the concept behind pulley with the help of problem

Hello Abhineet your answer is correct but you have missed a last point that makes your answer wrong

When block B travels 40 cm then it gains a final velocity v

v^2=2as

v^2=2×g/2×0.4....................40cm in 0.4m

v^2=4

v=2m/s

Then we have to find the distance traveled by block under gravity

u^2/2g=s

4/20=s

0.2=s

0.2m=20 cm

Total distance covered = distance covered by block due to pulley + distance covered by block under gravity

=40+20=60cm

Now see if you have any doubt about the ans.

And thank you for sharing you mechanical work method

Yes you are right bro. The answer should be

40cmfig

For A

\(4mg-2T=4ma_{1}\)...................(1)

For B

\(T-mg=ma_{2}\)..............................(2)

Also \(2a_{1}=a_{2}\).............................(3)

putting this value in equation (2)

\(T-mg=2ma_{1}\)

Multiplying this equation with 2 yields

\(2T-2mg=4ma_{1}\)............................(4)

Adding eq. 1 and 4 yields

\(2mg=8ma_{1}\)

So \(a_{1}=\frac{g}{4}\) and \(a_{2}=\frac{2g}{4}\)

As \(S=ut+0.5at^{2}\)

So for block A \( 0.2=\frac{g}{8}t^{2}\)

or \(t^{2}=\frac{8(0.2)}{g}\)

So for block B

\(S=0.5(\frac{2g}{4})(\frac{8(0.2)}{g})\)=

0.4 m=40cmBut I must say @Abhineet Nayyar that your method was the shortest I think.

Satvik but when block b travel 40 cm it's gains a final velocity v which is 2m/s then block b travels a distance till its velocity is decelerated so after calculation the distance traveled by block b under gravity is 20cm . So the total distance traveled by block b is 20+40=60cm

@Abhineet Nayyar missed that too. :P

Yes Yogesh you are right. I completely missed that and I thinkThank you Yogesh for pointing it.

Do have problem regarding the direction frictional force?Suppose if the blocks are accelerating towards right. Then friction forces acting on the blocks are towards left.

And i was going through 42 problem of chapter no 2 i got the ans 0.94 m/s^2 is it correct?

Your answer is wrong because in taking components of force you have made an mistake force on block b is 2T and 4mg in downward direction because of taking on T it will not make any sense because both the tension are in upward direction so if you T only the force acting on block it will be totally wrong

You are in class 10, right? There is a method in class 11, "The virtual work done method". You may learn about it on internet.

You may also use the Mechanical Energy Conservation Law and have in mind that displacement h of body A will correspond to displacement 2h of body B and that every moment B body speed is twice that of body A. Then you can find B body speed (v) at the instant body A sticks the ground. You will easily get that v^2=2gh. And the maximum height will be 2h+h=3h.

Is the answer 40 cm.?????

Log in to reply

I agree with you.

Log in to reply

The answer is got to be 40...Wait i'm gonna post a solve!!

No its 60 cm

Could you prove your statement?

Simply find the accelerations of A and B. Then find the time (t) that A will require to cover distance 'h' then use equations of motion to find the distance covered by B in time 't'.

Log in to reply

The main problem is I don't know to find acceleration in like this arrangement of pulley

Always try to draw the FBDs first.

Can you setup two equations for block A and B using newton's second law?

this note. I think there is a similar problem on brilliant also.

Please refer toLog in to reply

Refer to diagram:

For Block A

\( 4mg-2T=4ma\)............(1)

For block B

\(T-mg=ma_{1}\)................(2)

Also \(2a=a_{1}\) .................(3)

Now you have 3 equations and 3 variables. Just find the values of

aand \(a_{1}\)Log in to reply

F=4mg.But you wrote

F-2T=0. Block A is not in equilibrium.Log in to reply
