Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jake on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 10:15am.

Two masses, m1=3kg and m2=2kg, are suspended with a massless rope over a pulley of mass M = 10kg. The pulley turns without friction and may be modeled as a uniform disk of radius R=.1m. You may neglect the size of the masses. The rope does not slip on the pulley. The system begins at rest.

If m1 starts at a height h=1m above the ground, what is its speed v when it hits the ground?

I've tried a few different ways to get it but I can't seem to get the answer. I've tried using the sum of the torques as well as trying to use energy. I can't seem to figure it out, any help is much appreciated!
