1. Homework Statement

Consider two objects with m1>m2 connected by a light string that passes over a pulley having a moment of inertia of I about the axis of rotation. The string does not slip on the pulley or stretch. The pulley turns without friction. The two object are released from rest by a vertical distance of 9h.

Use the principle of conservation of energy to find the translational speeds of the objects as they pass each other?

Find the angular speed of the pulley at this time?
