block 1 has mass m1 = 480 g, block 2 has mass m2 = 540 g, and the pulley is on a frictionless horizontal axle and has radius R = 5.2 cm. When released from rest, block 2 falls 76 cm in 5.2 s (without the cord slipping on the pulley). What is the pulley's rotational inertia? Caution: Try to avoid rounding off answers along the way to the solution. Use g = 9.81 m/s2.
