the equivalent mass : the equation of the motion of the block of mass in terms of its displacement is = Explanation:

Let use m₁ to represent the mass of the block and m₂ to represent the mass of the cylinder

The radius of the cylinder  be = R

The distance between the center of the pulley to center of the block to be = x

Also, the angles of inclinations of the cylinder and the block with respect to the ground to be and respectively.

The velocity of the block to be = v

The equivalent mass of the system = In the terms of the equivalent mass, the kinetic energy of the system can be written as: ————— equation (1)

The angular velocity of the cylinder = :  &

The inertia of the cylinder about its center to be = I

The angular velocity of the cylinder can be written as:  The kinetic energy of the system in terms of individual mass can be written as: By replacing with ; we have:  —————— equation (2)

Equating both equation (1) and (2); we have: Therefore, the equivalent mass : which is read as;

The equivalent mass is equal to the mass of the block plus the mass of the cylinder plus the inertia by  the square of the radius.

The expression for the force acting on equivalent mass due to the block is as follows: Also; The expression for the force acting on equivalent mass due to the cylinder is as follows: Equating the above both equations; we have the equation of motion of the  equivalent system to be which can be written as follows from the previous derivations Finally; the equation of the motion of the block of mass in terms of its displacement is =
