ACT: Heavy (real) pulleys Two blocks of masses m 1 and m 2 (> m 1 ) are connected through a string that goes through two different pulleys. Pulley 1 is made of plastic. Pulley 2 is made of iron. In both cases, m 1 is initially at rest on the floor and m 2 hangs at distance h from the floor. Both systems are released simultaneously. In which case does mass m 2 hit the floor first? A. Case 1 B. Case 2 C. Same for both Case 1 (plastic) Case 2 (iron) m 2 m 1 m 2 m 1

Work done by a torque (for pure rotations) Work from θ 1 to θ 2 : θ τ d W z = 2 1 τ∆ = z W If torque is constant, A force F acts on an object as it rotates from θ 1 to θ 2 .
