## Homework Statement

In the given figure if the masses A and B move down with a velocity 'v' at any moment then what will be the velocity with which mass W rises.

A purely logical answer would be appreciated and please don't use calculus based approach, as I don't know calculus. Also please see my attempt at the solution and correct me.

## Homework Equations

Trigonometric ratios

## The Attempt at a Solution

If the masses are moving downwards with a velocity 'v' then the string is also moving with the same velocity that is 'v' so the velocity with which the mass W should rise should be equal to

'v cos θ' but the correct answer is 'v/cos θ'. Please do tell me why my approach is wrong and what is the correct method
