in an atwood machine case when one of the block descends by a distance h over a pulley with a particular mass and moment of inertia does the tension force (which is different in the 2 parts of the string connecting the blocks) do any work??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in any case work done by an inextensible string is 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1String has to be inextensible and massless too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here is a summary of usual assumptions with tensions and pulley that I wrote last April to answer a question similar to yours.
