[SOLVED] How far does the bucket fall? 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cylindrical pulley with a mass of M = 5.7 kg and a radius of r = 0.66 m is used to lower a bucket with a mass of m = 2 kg into a well. The bucket starts from rest and falls for 3.5 s. The acceleration of gravity is 9:8 m/s^2 : 2. Relevant equations Moment of Inertia Newtons second law W(f)=W(i)+(angular acceleration)(Time) 3. The attempt at a solution I = 1/2(5.7)(.66^2)=1.241 W(f)=0+(9.8?)(3.5) Is this the right equation to figure out how far the bucket dropped and does moment of Inertia have anything to effect it? would you do W(f) = 34.3, but do I multiply that by the moment of inertia?
