Two masses are suspended from a pulley as shown in the figure below (the Atwood machine). The pulley itself has a mass of 0.20 kg, a radius of 0.15 m, and a constant torque of 0.35 m·N due to the friction between the rotating pulley and its axle. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the suspended masses if m1 = 0.30 kg and m2 = 0.70 kg? (Neglect the mass of the string.)
