Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the distance covered is not the same. if one climbs faster, the other guy might also climb a shorter distance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i think i got it. without solving. since there is no external force momentum of the system is conserved. and since there masses are equal the rate at which they climb up the rope relative to ground is equal. hence they will reach at the same time. is that fine? correct me if i am wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yup, their velocity relative to the ground is equal.
