1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Blocks of mass m_1 and m_2 are connected by a massless string that passes over the pulley in the figure (Intro 1 figure) . The pulley turns on frictionless bearings, and mass m_1 slides on a horizontal, frictionless surface. Mass m_2 is released while the blocks are at rest. http://session.masteringphysics.com/problemAsset/1073792/5/12.P71.jpg I figured out A and B. A. Assume the pulley is massless. Find the acceleration of m_1. a=(m2g)/(m2+m1) B. Find the tension in the string. T=m1(m2g/m2+m1) C. Suppose the pulley has mass m_p and radius R. Find the acceleration of m_1. Verify that your answers agree with part A if you set m_p=0. D. Find the tension in the upper portion of the string. Verify that your answers agree with part B if you set m_p=0. E.Find the tension in the lower portions of the string. Verify that your answers agree with part B if you set m_p=0. 2. Relevant equations torque=Fxd torque net=sum of all forces T1=m1a+m1g T2=m2a+m2g torque net=T1r-T2r=(-a/r)I 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the tensions change because of the mass and radius of the pulley, but I don't know what it does. I made a FBD, but I don't know what to do with my equations... I don't get it.
