## Homework Statement

find tension in cable and velocity of B after 5 seconds. System released from rest. no slipping, neglect weight of pulley and cable.

## Homework Equations

τ(t) = Iω

Parallel axis theorem?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Picture of problem: http://i49.tinypic.com/5ue7sx.jpg

the question is R15-3, I attempted the problem by rotating the axes but i think that made me more confused. Once I do that, the tension on the wheel is still the same as the tension on the rope(not the X component?)

Also my prof said to consider parallel axis theorem, but if I'm analyzing the rolling wheel, isn't the point of rotation at the bottom where it touches the ground?
