A uniform solid cylinder of mass m1 and radius R is mounted on frictionless bearings about a fixed axis
through O. The moment of inertia of the cylinder about the axis is I = &frac12;m1R2. A block of mass m2,
suspended by a cord wrapped around the cylinder as shown above, is released at time t = 0.
a.
On the diagram below draw and identify all of the forces acting on the cylinder and on the block.
b.
In terms of ml, m2, R. and g, determine each of the following.
i.
The acceleration of the block.
ii.
The tension in the cord.
iii. The angular speed of the disk as a function of time, t.
iv. The angular speed of the disk as a function of distance fallen, h.
