Angular speed of the pulley

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    conservation of energy

    3. The attempt at a solution 20161103_145743.jpg

    I don't know whether it is correct or not, and I am quite confused in part b
    it asks the angular speed of the pulley
    can I say that v=rω since the pulley and box A,B have a common velocity?
    so is ω equal to 1/R*√((2gh)(mA-mB)/(mA+mB+I/R^2))?
    but the question is worth 10 marks:H
