The figure above shows a block B of negligible mass connected to a particle of mass \(1 \text{ kg}\) with a non-stretchable string. The hanging particle, at rest, is given a velocity \(\sqrt{8gH} \text{ m/s} \) horizontally. The initial acceleration of block B is \(K \text{ m/s}^2\). Find the value of \(K\).


  • Acceleration due to gravity \(g=10 \text{ m/s}^2 \).
  • \(H=2 \text{ m}\).
