Statement of a problem № 42048


A stationary pulley carries a rope whose one end supports a ladder with a man and the other end the counterweight of mass M. The man of mass m climbs up a distance l with respect to the ladder and then stops. Neglecting the mass of the rope and the friction in the pulley axle, find the displacement l of the centre of inertia of this system.
