5. Two blocks of masses M and 3M are connected by a light string. The string passes over a frictionless pulley of negligible mass so that the blocks hang vertically. The blocks are then released from rest. What is the acceleration of the mass M?

6. For a particular nonlinear spring, the relationship between the magnitude of the applied force F and the stretch of the spring x is given by the equation F = kx1.5. How much energy is stored in the spring when is it stretched a distance x1?

7. Two ice skaters are moving on frictionless ice and are about to collide. The 50-kg skater is moving directly west at 4 m/s. The 75-kg skater is moving directly north at 2 m/s. After the collision they stick together.

Two blocks of masses M and 2M are connected by a light string. The string passes over a pulley, as shown above. The pulley has a radius R and moment of inertia I about its center. t1 and t2 are the tensions in the string on each side of the pulley and a is the acceleration of the masses. Which of the following equations best describes the pulley's rotational motion during the time the blocks accelerate?
