Feb 2 comment Electric Fields @Crazybuddy I needed those selections to be colored.

Would I still have to use a force approach to find the acceleration of the can? Dec 2 asked Kinetic Energy And Rotational Motion Dec 2 comment Finding Rotational Kinetic Energy Of A Clock Even with the corrected values, I still get a wrong answer. The answer yielded from the calculations above is $3.80\cdot 10^{-4} J$, which is wrong.

However, I have a new question: if the tension forces on either side of the pulley are different, then why is there only one acceleration for the two blocks and the particles on the outer rim of the pulley? Dec 1 comment Tensions And Pulleys With Masses I've sort of run into a road-block trying to solve this problem. I try to solve for the acceleration, but I have no way of eliminating the unknowns from my equations; what still remains is the two tensions forces. So, I tried to figure out how they were related through torque on the pulley; and despite the fact that there is a relationship, it introduces another unknown, namely, the torque. How do I solve for the acceleration?
