The Compound Atwood Machine Problem
Coelho, R. Lopes
Physics Education, v52 n3 Article 035003 May 2017
The present paper accounts for progress in physics teaching in the sense that a problem, which has been closed to students for being too difficult, is gained for the high school curriculum. This problem is the compound Atwood machine with three bodies. Its introduction into high school classes is based on a recent study on the weighing of an Atwood machine.
