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

Well gravity's acceleration on objects is 9.8 m/s^2 and the question is why the Atwood Wheel moves faster as the mass on side is increased.

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

I am thinking it has something to do with inertia and the torque of the wheel since the more mass more inertia if i am not mistaken. Any help or point in the right direction would help thank you
