(a) The speed of the box is related to the angular speed of the wheel by v= Rω, so that KmvvKmboxboxboxboxm/s=¡==1221412.implies that the angular speed is = 1.41/0.20 = 0.71 rad/s. Thus, the kinetic energy of rotation is 12210 0I=.J.(b) Since it was released from rest at what we will consider to be the reference position for gravitational potential, then (with SI units understood) energy conservation requires
