Atwood’s Machine Example:
Masses m1 = 10 kg and m2 = 20kg are attached to an ideal massless string and hung as shown around an ideal massless pulley. What are the tensions in the string T1 and T2 ? Find the accelerations, a1 and a2, of the masses. Fixed Pulley T1 T2 m1 a1 m2 a2

Draw free body diagrams for each object
Applying Newton’s Second Law: T1 - m1g = m1a (a) T2 - m2g = -m2a2 => -T2 + m2g = +m2a2 (b) But T1 = T2 = T since pulley is ideal and a1 = -a2 =a since the masses are connected by the string m2g m1g Free Body Diagrams T1 T2 a1 a2

Solve for Acceleration
-m1g + T = m1 a (a) -T + m2g = m2 a (b) Two equations and two unknowns we can solve for both unknowns (T and a). Add (b) + (a): g(m2 – m1 ) = a(m1+ m2 ) m2g m1g Free Body Diagrams T1 T2 a1 a2

Solve for T -m1g + T = m1 a (a) -T + m2g = m2 a (b)
Plug a into (b) and Solve for T m2g m1g Free Body Diagrams T1 T2 a1 a2

Solution (Vector Components)
What are the force of friction and acceleration of the worker applies a horizontal force of 150N? 38kg +y +x To determine if the box will move, we must find the maximum static friction and compare it to the applied force. Since the applied force by the worker is only 150N, the box will not move

Understanding A person standing on a horizontal floor feels two forces: the downward pull of gravity and the upward supporting force from the floor. These two forces Have equal magnitudes and form an action/reaction pair Have equal magnitudes but do not form an action/reaction pair Have unequal magnitudes and form an action/reaction pair Have unequal magnitudes and do not form an action/reaction pair None of the above Because the person is not accelerating, the net force they feel is zero. Therefore the magnitudes must be the same (opposite directions. These are not action/reaction forces because they act of the same object (the person). Action/Reaction pairs always act on different objects.
