A Uniform Hollow Cylinder Has a Density Ρ


Starting from rest, a sphere rolls down a incline. What is the minimum value of coefficient of static friction if there is to be no slipping?

Question 3:

A spool of mass M is resting on a horizontal surface. The spool has moment of inertia about its axis of symmetry. The spool is subjected to the rightward horizontal force of magnitude F, applied at a distance r above the axis.

A Spool of Mass M is Resting on a Horizontal Surface

(a) Show if there is no slippage between spools and surrounding surface, a leftward frictional force must act on the spool

(b) Show that the required fractional force f has the value zero for the particular of the distance r.

Question 4:

a) Find the velocity of the center of mass of the rod

b) Find the angular velocity of the rod about center of mass

Question 6:

A uniform disc of Radius R and mass M is spanned to the angular velocity and then it is placed on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of friction between the disc and surface is . The pressure exerted by the disc on the surface can be regarded as uniform

a) Find the moment of inertia of the disc about the rotating axis

b) Find the angular deceleration of the disc

c) Find the time in which disc will come to rest

d) The kinetic energy of the disc t sec after the disc is placed on the surface
