A string that passes over a pulley has a .301kg mass attached to one end and a 0.635 kg mass attached to the other end. The pulley, which is a disk of radius 9.50cm, has friction in its axle. What is the magnitude of the frictional torque that must be exerted by the axle if the system is to be in static equilibrium?
I know I have to figure out the torque required by the axle to get both tensions equal. But I don't know what equations you use to figure out the torque with two masses on each side.
Thanks
