Alright
Block 1: T1 - Frictional Force = m*a
Block 3: m3*g - T3 = m*a
Pulley 2: (1/2)m2*r*a = (T3 - T1)*r
Then, T1 = m1*a + m1*g*u | T3 = m3*g - m3*a <--I plug these two into my 'Pulley 2'
I then algebraically solve for a and I end up with,
a = (m3*g - m1*g*u) / (0.5*m2 + m1 + m3)
I...
torque has units of Nm. So I need some sort of distance I take it? Would I use the radius as this distance? Would it be Torque=(T3-T1)r ?
EDIT: This also doesn't seem to work. I'm feeling pretty lost at this point. =/
Homework Statement
A block of mass m1 = 2 kg rests on a table with which it has a coefficient of friction µ = 0.53. A string attached to the block passes over a pulley to a block of mass m3 = 4 kg. The pulley is a uniform disk of mass m2 = 0.4 kg and radius 15 cm. As the mass m3 falls, the...
I also tried using the gravitational force as the Torque.
I used m*g*sin(20)=I*alpha
m*g*sin(20)/I=alpha and alpha*R = a
so... m*g*sin(20)*R/I=a,
but this didn't work either.
-------------------
I just solved this problem.
Are they the same?
b/c the frictional force is a force not coming out from the CM; therefore it helps it spin? I believe it is the only other force, so they must be the same?

Homework Statement
A 15 kg uniform disk of radius R = 0.25 m has a string wrapped around it, and a m = 5 kg weight is hanging on the string. The system of the weight and disk is released from rest.
a) When the 5 kg weight is moving with a speed of 1.7 m/s, what is the kinetic energy of the...
These are the hints they give me, I just don't understand at all what to do. I now believe though that the velocity I'm finding in the x-direction is incorrect, but I'm not sure why.
HELP: Because the cannon is moving, you must find the speed of the projectile with respect to the ground...
what do you mean "Then please label the 40 degrees"?
If you're implying that the answer is 40 degrees, I can assure with certainty that it isn't. I input these values into my homework online, and it returns with either an "OK" or "NO". I've tried 40 degrees, that was my first guess. =/
So...
