A block with mass m = 5.00 kg slides down a surface inclined 36.9 to the horizontal. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.25. A string attached to the block is wrapped around a flywheel has mass 25.0 kg and moment of inertia 0.500 kgm2 with respect to the axis of rotation. The string pulls without slipping at a perpendicular distance of 0.200 m from that axis.

a) What is the acceleration of the block down the plane

b) What is the tension in the string

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok ive been having a lot of trouble with things involving moments of inertia. ive found the friction that opposes the motion to be 9.81N. but how do i calculate the opposing force that the flywheel provides? any help is appreciated, as always..
