The attachment shows the string which is light and inextensible passing over two pulleys which are NOT massless. Hence they have some mass and some Moment of inertia.
There is no friction in the pulley thus the pulleys are free to rotate.
K ≥ 1
we know that the system will accelerate and the heavier pink object would accelerate downwards.
The red table is frictionless.
The thing that i am unable of grasp is finding the Tension in each part of the string.
I am not sure, if i have labelled them correctly.
Would someone please tell me the correct values.
Although i am quite sure that T1 and T2 are correctly labelled (ie showing that the tension in both of these parts of the string would be DIFFERENT)
What is the tension T3 and T4 equal to in terms of magnitude (is it the same as T1 or T2) and direction (will they be in the same direction as which i have drawn?)
The Attempt at a Solution
the attachment is an attempt (and might contain errors )
