Two objects are connected by a string of negligible mass. The 12 kg block is placed on a
smooth table top 2.4 m above the ﬂoor, and
the 9 kg block hangs over the edge of the table. The 9 kg block is then released from rest
at a distance of 1.2 m above the ﬂoor at time
t = 0.

Describe the motion of the 12 kg block from
the time t = 0 to the time when the 9 kg block
strikes the ﬂoor.
1. It moves with a decreasing acceleration.
2. It moves with an increasing acceleration.
3. It moves with a constant acceleration.
4. It moves with a constant speed.
5. It stays still.

Describe the motion of the 12 kg block from
the time the 9 kg block strikes the ﬂoor to the
time the 12 kg block leaves the table.
1. It stays still.
2. It moves with a constant speed.
3. It moves with a decreasing acceleration.
4. It moves with a constant acceleration.
5. It moves with an increasing acceleration.
