1. The problem states: Problem 9-72a: The system shown in the figure below consists of a m1 = 4.24-kg block resting on a frictionless horizontal ledge. This block is attached to a string that passes over a pulley, and the other end of the string is attached to a hanging m2 = 2.12-kg block. http://loncapa.mines.edu/res/whfreeman/tipler/Physics_for_Scientists_and_Engineers_6e/Chap09/graphics/tipler9-68.gif [Broken] The pulley is a uniform disk of radius 8.19 cm and mass 0.565 kg. Calculate the speed of the m2 = 2.12-kg block after it is released from rest and falls a distance of 2.23 m. Problem 9-72b: What is the angular speed of the pulley at this instant? 2. Relevant equations v=w(R) K=1/2mv^2 3. The attempt at a solution I set my system to be both the masses and the pulley, therefore the only external force would be the force of gravity. I think I'm supposed to set that equal to the translational and rotational energies of the system, translational for the masses and rotational for the pulley. But i don't know what they equations for the translational and rotational energies would be. Once i figure that out i can solve for the second part of the problem. Thanks in advance!
