1.A bucket of mass m is connected by a rope to a frictionless pulley of mass M. Use Newton’s 2nd law for torques and Newton’s 2nd law to find an equation for the acceleration of the bucket if it is released from rest and allowed to fall.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

so i need we need to find Normal force in both direction. i know that

sum of Force in X direction is that o= N- Tcos(theta)

From the problem i am not sure how to find the Tension and where the normal force in the Y direction would come from.
