(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1.65 kg mass is attached to a light cord that is wrapped around a pulley of radius 4.65 cm, which turns with negligible friction. The mass falls at a constant acceleration of 2.40 m/s2. Find the moment of inertia of the pulley.

2. Relevant equations

I=mr^2

Torque=I*alpha

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to just square the radius given and multiply it by the mass but that did not work. I also tried to find the Torque using T=mgr. And then divided that number by the acceleration/radius in order to get the angular acceleration.
