Question:

A tugboat T having a mass of 19 Mg is tied to a barge B having a mass 75 Mg. If the rope is elastic such that it has a stiffness k = 600 kN/m, determine the maximum stretch in the rope during the initial towing. Originally both the tugboat and barge are moving in the same direction with speeds (vT) 1 = 15 km/h and (vB) 1 = 10 km/h, respectively. Neglect the resistance of the water.
