    Rotational Dynamics -Mass pulley system

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Please help with the following problem.

    By means of a rope whose mass is negligible, two blocks are suspended over a pulley, as the drawing shows. The pulley can be treated as a uniform solid cylindrical disk. The downward acceleration of the 44.0-kg block is observed to be exactly one-half the acceleration due to gravity. Noting that the tension in the rope is not the same on each side of the pulley, find the mass of the pulley.
