Fun Problems!

20121205-160322.jpg59 I LOVE these types of problems. We have finally made the transition from massless pulleys to pulleys with rotational inertia. Now we are revisiting Atwood-type problems with this added twist. I could sit and solve these things just to relax. This is the AP class.

    Atwood’s machine figures prominently in a wonderful old paper on the trade off of power and efficiency, doing work. Do you know it? Might find it interesting… H.T.Odum and R.C.Pinkerton (1955) ‘Time’s speed regulator: The optimum efficiency for maximum output in physical and biological systems ‘, Am. Sci., 43 pp. 331–343.
