Homework Help: Moment of Inertia

  1. Oct 12, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Moment of Inertia at one end of a bar = mL^2/3
    Sum of Moments around point A = Moment of Inertia at point A x angular acceleration (alpha)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have a few different equations with the variables replaced accordingly but I am having trouble finding the tension holding the bar up due to the mass on the other side of the pulley.
