# NSEP Mechanics - I

Consider a simple Atwood machine with masses $${ m }_{ 1 }=0.3 \text{kg}$$ and $${ m }_{ 2 }=0.6 \text{kg}$$.The larger mass is stopped for a moment $$2$$ $$\text{s}$$ after the system is set into motion. Find the time elapsed before the string is tight again.

Details and Assumptions:

• Both string and the pulley are light and smooth.

• Assume $$g=9.8 \text{ m/s}^{2}$$.
