Homework Help: Dynamic motion involving pulleys and friction.

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    FC = FfB
    mC * 9.81 = (6.0)(9.81)(0.30)
    mC = 1.8 <---- :(

    Obviously that was wrong haha. I then tried to figure out how the pulley affects the relationships of the forces, and figured:

    FfB = MC(9.8-aA)
    17.6 = MC(9.8-aA) <-----One equation, two unknowns. Need another equation, assuming this one is correct.

    Hi DaftCrunk! Welcome to PF! :smile:
    Yup! … try F = ma for A-and-B. :wink:
