Two blocks, A and B, are connected by a cable which runs over the shown
pulley in a frictionless manner. The masses of cable and
pulley can be neglected.
Sketch the complete F.B.D. of block A
Sketch the complete F.B.D. of block B
Circle the item(s) you think are correct :
The acceleration of block A and B have the same absolute value
The force the cable exterts on block A and B have the
same absolute value
Derive the equation for the acceleration of block B in terms of
μ = coefficient of friction between block A
and supporting surface.
mA = mass of block A
mB = mass of block B
g = gravitational acceleration
