In the Atwood machine regular 2 mass machine,m1= 2.20kg and m2=7.30kg . The masses of the pulley and string are negligible by comparison. The pulley turns without friction and the string does not stretch. The lighter object is released with a sharp push that sets it into motion at an initial velocity of 2.70m/s downward. I found the Tension to be 33.1N, but i don't understand how to apply to find how far will m1 descend below its initial value? Could anyone help me out?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
