Pulley problem: find equilibrium

  1. Oct 15, 2006 #1
    Pulley Problem.

    m1=10kg and m2=20kg both at angle 40 degrees.Find the force, parallel to the frictionless plan.e that will allow the systme to move at constant speed.

    I would know how to solve this problem if it wasn't constant speed.but it being that just through me off.All i want is a start off.thanks in advanced.

    Look up Newton's second law and see what happens to the net force acting on a system when the speed is constant.
