# Unwinding Cylinder (Moment of Inertia; Angular Rotation)

A cylinder with moment of inertia I about its center of mass, mass m, and radius r has a string wrapped around it which is tied to the ceiling. The cylinder's vertical position as a function of time is y(t).

At time t=0 the cylinder is released from rest at a height h above the ground.
