Homework Statement
hi everyone,, I need an explanation for this question:
A 1.0 kg block A is hanged by a light string from a pulley of mass
M = 1.0 kg. Another block B of mass 4.0 kg is attached to a massless rope wound around a massless shaft. The pulley has a radius 260.0 Rcm= and the shaft has a radius. The block B is released from rest when it is at height h = 4.0 m above the ground. 130.0 cm R=
The rotational inertia (moment of inertia) of the pulley with respect to its center of mass is.
I(com)=0.5*M*R2^2
(a) Find the angular acceleration of the pulley.
(b) Find the accelerations of the blocks.
(c) Determine the tensions in the strings.
(d) Find the speeds of the block A and block B just before the block B hits the ground.
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
Actually ,, I have the answer ,, but the problem I don't know how did he get the moment of inertia like that (in the attachment)
