    put up a solution and will check it
    Not tried it just yet, but I will do later. It's just that the last line 'in terms of m and g' bothered me. Would there not have to be another length in there somewhere?

    we have to wait for the Mechanics master-kid .
    (Hopefully I catch him !!!, as he looks unbeatable at the moment)

    I get 4/3 mg (I could be wrong)
    You are probably right. I misread your question - I thought that it said that there was a couple acting contrary to the torque generated by the falling mass - in fact, it's a frictional couple, so it can't be analysed the way I was going about it - you need an energy argument. (I also used h instead of 2h when calculating the final speed of the falling mass but that's trivial). I'll have to start taking more care with these questions.

    Fair enough, but as long as its next week because I'm not going to be able to do any maths this weekend as I have a fair bit of chemistry work to do...

    I'm taking your questions too casually - trying to do them on scraps of paper while doing other stuff. I'm going to up my game from now on.

    When it comes to me and your mechanics questions, Mr TeeEm, from now on, it's no more Mister Nice Guy.

    Pi is an A-level kid?

    The mass has lost 4gh of PE when it comes to rest, which can only be converted into the work against the couple. This turns through 2h so C \times 2h = 4gh \Rightarrow C=2g
    Given someone has repped this, I ought to point out that the argument is wrong (I forgot about the jerk => inelastic) - you can see the correct approach further down the thread. (Conservation of AM to start with, which is always true, so we don't have to worry about elastic/inelastic processes).
