of mass M and radius R (I = MRZ/Z) on a frictionless plane inclined at angle 6 to horizontal, as
shown. When the block m1 is released it slides down the slope with acceleration a. A) Find the acceleratiOn a of the blocks. (15 pt) B) Using the obtained formula, decide on how the acceleration depends on 6, M, R, i.e. if the
acceleration increase decide whether will each of these quantities increase, decrease or remain
the same. (5 pt) C) If mass m is much larger than both mass m; and mass M of the pulley, determine the limiting
value of acceleration a. (5 pt) 12. A ball with massm = 2 kg is attached to a vertical spring with a force constant of k =12O N/m as

attained. A) Find the adjusted equilibrium position of the system. (lOpt) B) When the block is again moved to the original height and dropped it starts oscillations about
