Hey good people, im new here and i found that you help people, i hope you can help me with this ive been triyng to solve this for a while but with no luck 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A chain of mass m0 per unit length is loosely coiled on the floor. If one of the end is subjected to a constant force P, when y = 0 , determine followings when P = 10N and m0 = 0.2kg / m (a) Determine the maximum value of chain length ymax (b) Determine the velocity of the chain as a function of y while 0 ≤ y ≤ ymax . (c) Determine the acceleration of the chain as a function of y while 0 ≤ y ≤ ymax . (d) Plot velocity and acceleration of hook chain as a function as a function y in all the cases using MATLAB while 0 ≤ y ≤ ymax . Im only interested in Part (a) .. i can do the rest by myself. 2. Relevant equations P=mv, p=momentum , m=mass , v= velocity u=m/y, u=linear density , m=mass , y= length 3. The attempt at a solution i started with the momentum equation i derive it using the chain rule ... i worked it out i end up with deferential equation F=2*u*dy*(d^2y/dt^2) now im stuck at this point, im not sure if it correct or not ... is it possible to solve it without using deferential equation ?
