Posted by Ty on Monday, March 24, 2008 at 4:18pm.

questions( there are 3 so I will # 1-3)

info: A 18.9 kg object is attached to a cord that is wrapped around a wheel of radius 10.7 cm. The acceleration of the object down the frictionless incline is measured to be .9 m/s2. Assume the axle of the wheel to be frictionless. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2.

1.) Find the tension in the rope. Answer in units of N

2.) Find the moment of inertia of the wheel. Answer in units of kg*m2

3.) Find the angular speed of the wheel 1.77 sec after it begins rotating, starting from rest. Answer in units of rad/sec.

________
so lost! Don't even know where to begin!!!
