(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two pulley wheels, or respective radii R1 =

0.34 m and R2 = 0.64 m are mounted rigidly

on a common axle and clamped together. The

combined moment of inertia of the two wheels

is I + 1.2 kg*m^2.

Mass m1 = 25 kg is attached to a cord

wrapped around the first wheel, and another

mass m2 = 19 kg is attached to another cord

wrapped around the second wheel.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2 :

Find the angular acceleration of the system.

Take clockwise direction as positive. Answer

in units of rad/s^2.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
