- Homework Statement
- Two buckets of mass 6 kg are each attached to one end of a long inexten-

sible string passing over a fixed pulley. If a 2 kg mass of putty is dropped from a

height of 5 m into one bucket, calculate (i) the initial velocity of the system,

(ii) the acceleration of the system, (iii) the loss of energy of the 2 kg mass due to

the impact.

- Relevant Equations
- Newton's Laws

A) I am not sure if initial velocity means the initial velocity of the putty. If then, it should be 10m/s. But the answer given is 10/7 m/s

B) i have solved this part correctly

C) the answer should be 86J

Please be kind to help me
