Find frequency and period of oscillation

  1. Jul 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Consider the pulley to be ideal. If the system disturbed from its equilibrium position by pulling the right hand mass down a slight amount and then released, determine the frequency and period of the oscillation. Radius of pulley is r=2m and I bar of the pulley is 10kg/m2.

    here is the picture:

    I got f=0.982hz and T=1.01s

    Is that correct?
