Mechanics - 3

Given that:

  • the velocity of \(A\) with respect to \(C\), \(v_{AC} = \text{300 m/s}\uparrow\) (note the direction of the velocity)
  • the velocity of \(B\) with respect to \(A\), \(v_{BA} = \text{200 m/s}\downarrow\).

Find the absolute velocity of \(A\), \(v_A\).

Assumptions:

  • The strings are massless and inextensible.
  • The pulleys are massless and there is no friction in the pulley and between the string and pulley.
