1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The blocks are of mass 2 kg shown is in equilibrium. At t = 0 right spring in fig (i) and right string in
fig (ii) breaks. Find the ratio of instantaneous acceleration of blocks?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
In fig (i) before the string is cut,(2kx)sin37° = 2g , kx=g/sin37°
In fig (ii) before the string is cut,(2T)sin37° = 2g , T=g/sin37°
Is the instantaneous acceleration in the two cases same i.e ratio 1:1
I would be grateful if somebody could help me with the problem .
