1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the angular acceleration of the uniform disk if (a) the rotational inertia of the disk is ignored and (b) the inertia of the disk is considered. The system is released from rest, the cord does not slip on the disk, and bearing friction at O may be neglected. The angular acceleration is positive if counterclockwise, negative if clockwise. I have attached an image of the question 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution m1 = 1.5 kg m2 = 3.1kg r = 0.32m I started by summing the moments about O ƩMO = (-m1gr + m2gr)/IO IO = 2mr2 but I'm not sure why this is the case. A classmate of mine said something about adding in the inertias from the weight but I'm not sure what this means. Also, how to I account for the disk inertia? Any advice would be appreciated.
