A block (mass raA) lying on a fixed frictionless inclined plane isconnected to a mass mB by a cord passing over a pulley, asshown in Fig. 4-54. (a) Determine a formula for the accelerationof the system in terms of mA, raB, 0, and g. (b) Whatconditions apply to masses mA and mB for the accelerationto be in one direction (say, mA down the plane), or in theopposite direction? Ignore the mass of thecord and pulley.FIGURE 4-54 67 and 68.
