# Falling Chain A portion of a uniform chain of length 8ft is loosely coiled around a peg at the edge

## Question:

xv dy/dx + v^{2} = 32x.

(a) Rewrite this model in differential form. Proceed as in Problems 31€“36 and solve the DE for v in terms of x by finding an appropriate integrating factor. Find an explicit solution v(x).

(b) Determine the velocity with which the chain leaves the platform.
