1. A uniform sperical shell of mass Ms and radius R rotates about a vertical axis on frictionless bearings. A light cord passes around the equator of the shell over a pulley (a disk of mass Mp and radius r) and is attached to a small block of mass m that is otherwise free to fall under the influence of gravity.
A. What is the acceleration of the block?
