# i need help i couldnt figure this out...

A block of mass m = 3 kg is attached to a spring (k = 35 N/m) by a rope that hangs over a pulley of mass M = 6 kg and radius R = 6 cm, as shown in the figure. Treating the pulley as a solid homogeneous disk, neglecting friction at the axle of the pulley, and assuming the system starts from rest with the spring at its natural length, answer the following.

2. the following what? My gut feel is that you will be dealing with energy, and force in this.

T is tension between block and pulley)
F = m a
m g - T = m a
T = m(g-a)

T - spring force = Torque/R
T - k x = Torque/R
Torque = I alpha (I is in moment of inertia table for M and R)
T -k x = I alpha/R
a = alpha R
T - k x = I a/R^2
m(g-a) - kx = (I/R^2)a
m g = k x + ma +(I^2/R) a
m g = k x +(m+I^2/R^2)d^2x/dt^2
(This is a spring mass system with equilibrium at x = mg/k and 2 pi f=sqrt(k/(m+I^2/R^2)
but onward
split x into Xo + A sinwt
then mg = kXo for steady result
then
x(t) time function = A sin wt
then
a = d^2x/dt^2 = -Aw^2 sin wt = -w^2 x
0 = k x(t) - (m+I^2/R^2)w^2 x(t)
w^2 = k/(m+I^2/R^2)
so we have a vibration at frequency w/2pi about the point mg/k
