A 12.0 kg box resting on a horizontal, friction-less surface is attached to a 5.00 kg weight by a thin, light wire that passes over a friction-less pulley. The pulley has the shape of a uniform solid disk of mass 1.50 kg and diameter 0.600 m (see attachment).
a) After the system is released, find the horizontal tension in the wire.
b) After the system is released, find the vertical tension in the wire.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 8:59 pm ad1c9bdddf
The solution shows how to calculate the tensions in the wire and the force that axle exerts on the pulley after the system is released in detail (see attachment).
