    1.) Find the total energy of the system at the given instant if the 20 kg disc has an angular velocity of 24 rad/s (clockwise), the bar AB has a mass of 2 kg, and the system is 1.5 meters above the ground. Assume

    Total energy = Potential energy + K.E.
    potential energy of the bar AB, Uab = m(bar)*g*h(bar) = 2*9.8*1.5 = 29.40 J
    potential energy of the disc, Ud = m(disc)*g*h(disc) = 20*9.8*1.5 = 294.00 J
    K.E. of the disc, K = 0.5*I(disc)*w^2

    moment of inertia of the disc, I = 0.5*m(disc)*r^2 = 0.5*20*0.1^2 = 0.10 kg.m^2
    angular velocity of the disc, w = 24 rad/s

    Hence, K = 0.5*0.10*24 = 1.20 J

    hence, total Energy = 29.40 + 294.00 + 1.20 = 324.6 == 323 J --Answer (d)

    2.) For block: mass M = 150 lb

    By Newton's law,
    Mg - T = M*a ........(1)

    a: acceleration

    Because pulley is frictionless, therefore,
    T = T' ; alpha' = 0 (pulley will not rotate)

    For cylinder : mass m = 100 lb, theta = 50 deg, friction ...
