## A motorist is traveling at 54 km/h when she

observes that a traffic light 240 m ahead of her
turns red. The traffic light is timed to stay red for
24 s. If the motorist wishes to pass the light
without stopping just as it turns green again,
determine (a) the required uniform deceleration of
the car, (b) the speed of the car as it passes the
light.

PROBLEM 11.59

The system shown starts from rest, and each component moves with a constant
acceleration. If the relative acceleration of block C with respect to collar B is 60
mm/s 2 upward and the relative acceleration of block D with respect to block A is
110 mm/s 2 downward, determine (a) the velocity of block C after 3 s, (b) the
change in position of block D after 5 s.

SOLUTION

## From the diagram

## Then 2v A 2vB vC 0 (1)

and 2 a A 2 a B aC 0 (2)

Cable 2: ( y D y A ) ( y D y B ) constant

## Given: At t 0, v 0; all accelerations constant;

aC/B 60 mm/s2 , aD /A 110 mm/s 2
(a) We have aC/B aC a B 60 or a B aC 60

## Substituting into Eqs. (2) and (4)

Eq. (2): 2( a D 110) 2( aC 60) aC 0

## Eq. (4): ( a D 110) ( aC 60) 2 a D 0
