1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This is the diagram http://s1302.beta.photobucket.com/user/Rameel17/media/dd_zps43d04d44.png.html A single large circular Olympic ring hangs freely at the lower end of a strong flexible ring which is firmly supported at the other end. Two identical beads each has a mass of 30 kg are free to slide without friction around the ring. The ring passes through the hole in the beads. The two beads are released from rest at the very top as shown of the ring. At least once during their fall to the bottom the tension in the rope is zero. Calculate the maximum mass of the king in kg. 3. The attempt at a solution I am not sure where to being for this one.
