Two pulleys are glued together and placed on a common axis. The total moment of interia for the pulleys is 22.0 kgm^2. The radius of the smaller pulley is 0.170 meters and hanging from it is a mass 5.94 kg. The large pulley has a radius of 0.510 meters and hanging from it is a mass of 8.41 kg. If the axle is frictionless:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) What is the angular acceleration of the pulley?

rad/s^2

b) What is the linear acceleration of the mass, m1?

m/s^2

c) What is the angular acceleration of the mass, m2?

m/s^2
