Atwood's Machine

  1. Nov 27, 2007 #1
    Problem: There is this pulley, pulley A. On one end is another pulley, pulley B, and on the other end is a weight of mass X. On one end of pulley B is a weight of mass Y and on the other end is a weight of mass Z. How do you get the acceleration of the system? I mean the acceleration of the weights.
