Two unequal masses m1 and m2 (m1 > m2 ) are suspended by a light string over a pulley of mass M and radius R as in Fig. 4.5. Assuming that slipping does not occur and the friction of the axle is negligible, (a) find the acceleration with which the masses move; (b) angular acceleration of the pulley; (c) ratio of tensions T1/T2 in the process of motion.

Solution:
Two unequal masses m1 and m2 (m1 > m2 ) are suspended by a light string over a p
