I need to calculate the moment of inertia of the setup below and i am confused.i have to initially calculate it without the point of masses and than with the point of masses. I have already calculated the acceleration for each of the experiments.
The info i have is:
Hanging mass  .050kg
Pulley Radius  .010m
Point of mass 1  .250kg
Point of mass 2  .250kg
Acceleration  0.00671
I believe the moment of inertia of the bare arm is
I = mr²((ga)/a)
I = .050*.010² * ((9.80.00671)/0.00671)
I = 0.000005 * 1459.51 = 0.0730
Am i calculating this correctly?
thanks in advance
