## Homework Statement

a mass of 0.5kg is suspended from a flywheel. if the mass is released from rest and falls a distance of 0.5m in 1.5s, calculate : The tension in the rope. acceleration is 0.444ms-2.

## Homework Equations

t-w = -ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

t = m(ag)

t = 0.5(0.4444=9.81)

t = 5.127n

w = mg = 0.5x9.81 4.9n

so t-w 0.227n is rope tension.

Check by inserting numbers into equation of t-w = -ma

so: 5.127 - 4.905 = 0.5 x 0.222.

The last equation doesn`t marry up?
