Example 9-13 Two blocks are connected by a string that passes over a pulley of radius  R  and moment of inertia  I . The block of mass  m 1  slides on a frictionless, horizontal surface; the block of mass  m 2  is  suspended from the string ( Figure       9-29     ). Find the acceleration a of the blocks and the tensions  T and  T 2 . The string does not slip on the pulley. PICTURE  The tensions  T 1  and  T 2  are not equal because the pulley has mass and because there  is static friction between the string and the pulley ( Figure       9-29     ). (If the two tensions were equal,  the torque on the pulley by the string would be zero.) Note that  T 2  exerts a clockwise torque and  1  exerts a counterclockwise torque on the pulley. Use Newton’s second law for each block, and  Newton’s second law for rotational motion for the pulley. Relate

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
