Hi, Im working on the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 2.85kg bucket is attached to a disk shaped pulley of radius 0.121m and mass of 0.742 kg. If the bucket is allowed to fall,

what is:

linear acceleration, angular acceleration of pulley and,

how far does the bucket drop in 1.5 s?

so far i solved for I = 1/2mr^2

= 1/2 (0.742) 1.21^2

=.0054

now im not sure how to get the linear acceleration

any tips?
