    A m1 = 16.0 kg object and a m2 = 12.5 kg object are suspended, joined by a cord that passes over a pulley with a radius of 10.0 cm and a mass of 3.00 kg (Fig. P10.46). The cord has a negligible mass and does not slip on the pulley. The pulley rotates on its axis without friction. The objects start from rest 3.00 m apart. Treating the pulley as a uniform disk, determine the speeds of the two objects as they pass each other.
