An Atwood Machine has a pulley of radius Rpulley = 0.25m, and
mass Mpulley = 6.0 kg with two blocks with masses m1 = 5.0 kg,
and m2 = 10.0 kg. Treat the pulley as a uniform disk.
a) Find the acceleration of each block.
b) Find the angular acceleration of the pulley.
c) Find the tension in each rope T1 and T2.
