A ring of mass mm slides on a smooth vertical rod. A light string is attached to the ring and is passing over a smooth pulley over a smooth peg at a distance aa from the rod, and at the other end of the string is a mass M>mM>m. The ring is held on a level with the peg and released. What is the distance traveled before it comes to rest for first time?
