A wheel of radius R, mass M and moment of inertia I is mounted on a frictionless axle. A light cord is wrapped around the wheel and attached to a block of mass m. Calculate the angular acceleration of the wheel.
Moment of inertia of a wheel is given by;
`I = m*R^2`
The torque applied on the chord is due to the weight of mass m as the...
