Homework Help: Dependent motion - cable (rope) velocity

  1. Apr 16, 2006 #1
    Hi, fellows !
    In an arrangement of 2 slinding blocks connected by a cable (rope). I can state the blocks position and their velocity as a consequence. On the other hand, i can't figure out the cable velocity...which concept should I apply for ?

    VB=18in/s > (Info)
    VA= 27 in/s > (found)

    What about the cables D and E velocity ?
    Cable C has the same veloc of block B.

    Thanks, Leonel

    I would say the cable velocity is equal to the velocity of B.
