- An object suspended having the weight of both the cord and the object displaced upward. What is the equation I must use?
I was just doing some review on my physics lecture and I stumble on the idea of what if there was an object hanging and the cord mass is also included in the weight and it's displaced upward without having velocity nor time hypothetically and the cord change mass. I tried solving it by W = fΔx that I came up with this equation W = m1g(height initial - height final) - m2g(height initial - height final), but I'm certain integral is a must on this problem, but I don't know how to derive my own equation that the mass is dependent of the distance. I was wondering if any of you can give me any insight on how to solve this problem.
