# Pulley Challenge!

Classical Mechanics Level 4

A mass of $$2m$$ kg is suspended from the string on one side while two masses of $$m$$ kg are on the other side as shown.

The system starts at rest. Suddenly, the lower mass of $$m$$ kg is flicked up with velocity 40 m/s.

After how many seconds will the rope be taut again?

Details

• $$g = 10\text{ m/s}^2$$
• Assume the rope is very long and the masses do not collide.
