    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The diagram is here http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/5...ionproblem.png [Broken]

    What is the tension in the cord connecting B and C? How far does A move in the first 0.250 seconds of movement assuming it does not reach the pulley?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Tension1=(Mass of A)(acceleration)
    Tension1 - (Mass of B)(gravity)=(Mass of B)(acceleration)
