Igor Yevgenyevich Irodov (Russian: Игорь Евгеньевич Иродов; 16 November 1923 – 21 October 2002) was a Soviet Russian physicist and World War II veteran. He was mostly known as a physics professor at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Engineering (MEPHi) and the author of a series of handbooks on general physics, which became lecture courses in physics in several countries.
How far you recommend krotov to high schoolers? like i genuinely want to improve my problem solving skills as i have given enough time in concepts and derivation stuffs...even of non routine courses but yeah need to sacrifice a few things for irodov! so?
Hello everbody,
I found the following resolution:
We can consider the winding of the wire as a thin disc.
Like this,
For a given instant t, we will have M (t) mass of the disc and R (t) radius of the disc.
Analyzing linear dynamics:
$$M(t)gsen\theta - T = M(t).a $$

First thing that I notice is that the other part of string (to which body 2 is connected) is fixed. Therefore, I concluded that the body 2 is stationary with respect to the pulley 2 (let's agree that pulley to which body 1 is connected is pulley 1 and in same way pulley 2 is defined)...

My struggle here comes from finding the bending moment ##N(x)##. My working is as follows.
We want to find the bending moment on an element a distance ##x## away from the axis of rotation. To do so, let us consider the bending moment due to the force on an element ##\xi>x## away from the axis...
The thing is, I've already looked up at the solution online at it's t= 2a/3v. But I've approached it a different way and I can't really tell what I'm doing wrong, my solutions gives out t= (a/√3v )* (π/3),I don't know what's wrong with it. Here's my approach:
