# Two blocks are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley as in Figure P5.38. The system is released from rest while m 2 is on the floor and m 1 is a distance h above the floor. (a) Assuming m 1 &gt; m 2 , Find an expression for the speed of m 1 just as it reaches the floor. (b) Taking m 1 = 6.5 kg, m 2 = 4.2 kg, and h = 3.2 m, evaluate your answer to part (a), and (c) find the speed of each block when m 1 has fallen a distance of 1.6 m. Figure P5.38
