Need help with moment of inertia question

  1. Mar 9, 2009 #1
    The blocks shown in the figure below are connected by a string of negligible mass passing over a pulley of radius r = 0.250 meter and moment of inertia I. The block on the frictionless incline is moving up with a constant acceleration of magnitude a = 2.00 m/s2. What is the moment of inertia I of the pulley?
