In the device a 50g mass is hung from a pulley and released. A disk is placed on the platform. The platform has a radius of 5cm.

The disk and platform go from rest to an angular velocity of 8.5rad/s in 2.5 seconds. What is the moment of inertia of the disk? What is its mass? Ignore the mass of the platform.
