## Homework Statement

Two blocks are connected by a light string passing over a pulley of radius 0.35 m and moment of inertia I. The blocks move (towards the right) with an acceleration of 1.50 m/s2 along their frictionless inclines (see the figure).

Determine FTA and FTB, the tensions in the two parts of the string.

Find the net torque (magnitude only) acting on the pulley, and determine its moment of inertia, I.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Is there a separate tension for each piece of string and what are the equations if that is the case. If it is not the case, then what is the equation to find the tension?? Please Help!
