A unique rope and pulley problem

  1. Nov 13, 2013 #1
    A uniform heavy rope of length 2l goes over a small smooth pulley such that the right end has length (l+a) while the left end has length (l-a). The shorter portion is held and then released. Find the time taken for the rope to slip off the pulley.
