If the hoist H is moving upward at 6 ft/s, determine the speed at which the motor M must draw in the supporting cable.

[A]. VP/H = 6 ft/s
[B]. VP/H = 2 ft/s
[C]. VP/H = 12 ft/s
[D]. VP/H = 18 ft/s

Answer: Option D

Number of vertical strings X upward velocity = motor velocity.

3x6 = 18 fp/s.

Use the concept of constraint equations in Arihant's DC Pandey Mechanics Part 1.

It'll help to get the solution.
