Load on Wheels Question
My friend and I are doing a physics project that analyzes movie physics and we have a quick question. In Home Alone 2, the kid ties a doorknob to a tool chest on wheels that is a floor up. The bad guys pull on the doorknob and the tool chest starts falling down the stairs. How would we calculate the initial velocity of the tool chest after it gets pulled by the rope?
