Question: 1 30 points in the figure below you may assume...

Question details

1) (30 points) In the figure below, you may assume the followind: Cylinders A and B have masses ma and me. The pulley has mass moment of inertia lo The ropes are massless and do not stretch. There is no slipping between the rope and the pulley. There is no friction between the pulley and its support. From your knowledge of Statics and Dynamics, do the following: a) Draw complete freebody diagrams for the two masses and the pulley. Hint: show the forces in the rope. b) Use the freebody diagrams to write Newtons Second Law (2F- ma) for cylinders A and B c) Use the freebody diagrams to write the rotational form of Newtons Second Law (2M-la) for the pulley. d) Write a kinematic equation relating the acceleration of cylinder A to the angular acceleration of the pulley
