Discussion :: KOP: Impulse and Momentum - General Questions (Q.No.3)


A basket and its contents weigh 10 lb. A 20-lb monkey grabs the other end of the rope and very quickly (almost instantaneously) accelerates by pulling hard on the rope until he is moving with a constant speed of vm/r = 2 ft/s measured relative to the rope. The monkey then continues climbing at this constant rate relative to the rope for 3 seconds. How fast is the basket rising at the end of the 3 seconds? Neglect the mass of the pulley and the rope.

[A]. vbasket = 33.5 ft/s
[B]. vbasket = 32.2 ft/s
[C]. vbasket = 96.6 ft/s
[D]. vbasket = 97.9 ft/s

Answer: Option A
