Let h represent the height of the triangle and w the thickness of the plate, much smaller than L or h. Do the calculation in either or both of the following ways, as your instructor assigns: (a) Use Equation 10.17.

Show that the density of the material is given by = 2M/Lwh. Show that the mass of the ribbon is dm = yw dx = 2Mx dx/L2. Proceed to use Equation 10.17 to calculate the moment of inertia. (b) Let I represent the unknown moment of inertia about an axis through the corner of the triangle. Note that Example 9.15 demonstrates that the center of mass of the triangle is two-thirds of the way along the length L, from the corner toward the side of height h. Let ICM represent the moment of inertia of the triangle about an axis through the center of mass and parallel to side h. Demonstrate that I = ICM + 4ML2/9. Figure P10.28b shows the same object in a different orientation. Demonstrate that the moment of inertia of the triangular plate, about the y axis is Ih = ICM + ML2/9. Demonstrate that the sum of the moments of inertia of the triangles shown in parts (a) and (b) of the figure must be the moment of inertia of a rectangular sheet of mass 2M and length L, rotating like a door about an axis along its edge of height h. Use information in Table 10.2 to write down the moment of inertia of the rectangle, and set it equal to the sum of the moments of inertia of the two triangles. Solve the equation to find the moment of inertia of a triangle about an axis through its center of mass, in terms of M and L. Proceed to find the original unknown I. Figure P10.28 29.

The flywheel is spun up to its maximum rotation rate of 4 000 rev/min by an electric motor at the bus terminal. Every time the bus speeds up, the flywheel slows down slightly. The bus is equipped with regenerative braking, so that the flywheel can speed up when the bus slows down. The flywheel is a uniform solid cylinder with mass 1 600 kg and radius 0.650 m. The bus body does work against air resistance and rolling resistance at the average rate of 18.0 hp as it travels with an average speed of 40.0 km/h.

A friend spins the other wheel, of radius 0.381 m, and observes that drops of water fly off tangentially. She measures the height reached by drops moving vertically (Fig. P10.63). A drop that breaks loose from the tire on one turn rises h = 54.0 cm above the tangent point. A drop that breaks loose on the next turn rises 51.0 cm above the tangent point.

(b) Before the invention of a wheel turning on an axle, Figure P10.72 ancient people moved heavy loads by placing rollers under them. (Modern people use rollers too. Any hardware store will sell you a roller bearing for a lazy susan.) A stone block of mass 844 kg moves forward at 0.335 m/s, supported by two uniform cylindrical tree trunks, each of mass 82.0 kg and radius 0.343 m. No slipping occurs between the block and the rollers or between the rollers and the ground. Find the total kinetic energy of the moving objects. 76. A uniform solid sphere of radius r is placed on the inside surface of a hemispherical bowl with much larger radius R.

Following Thanksgiving dinner your uncle falls into a deep sleep, sitting straight up facing the television set. A naughty grandchild balances a small spherical grape at the top of his bald head, which itself has the shape of a sphere. After all the children have had time to giggle, the grape starts from rest and rolls down without slipping. It will leave contact with your uncle's scalp when the radial line joining it to the center of curvature makes what angle with the vertical? 83.

Determine the speed of the rod's center of mass just before it hits the surface. 84. A large, cylindrical roll of tissue paper of initial radius R lies on a long, horizontal surface with the outside end of the paper nailed to the surface. The roll is given a slight shove (vi 0) and commences to unroll. Assume the roll has a uniform density and that mechanical energy is conserved in the process. (a) Figure P10.79 80. A thin rod of mass 0.630 kg and length 1.24 m is at rest, hanging vertically from a strong fixed hinge at its top end. Suddenly a horizontal impulsive force 14.7 ^i N is applied to it.

A spool of wire of mass M and radius R is unwound under a constant force F (Fig. P10.85). Assuming the spool is a uniform solid cylinder that doesn't slip, show that (a) the acceleration of the center of mass is 4F/3M and (b) the force of friction is to the right and equal in magnitude to F/3. (c) If the cylinder starts from rest and rolls without slipping, what is the speed of its center of mass after it has rolled through a distance d? cylinders roll without slipping on a flat surface. There is also no slipping between the cylinders and the plank. (a) Find the acceleration of the plank and of the rollers. (b) What friction forces are acting? Figure P10.86 87. A spool of wire rests on a horizontal surface as in Figure P10.87. As the wire is pulled, the spool does not slip at the contact point P. On separate trials, each one of the forces F1, F2, F3, and F4 is applied to the spool. For each one of these forces, determine the direction the spool will roll. Note that the line of action of F2 passes through P. Figure P10.85 86. A plank with a mass M = 6.00 kg rides on top of two identical solid cylindrical rollers that have R = 5.00 cm and m = 2.00 kg (Fig. P10.86). The plank is pulled by a constant horizontal force F of magnitude 6.00 N applied to the end of the plank and perpendicular to the axes of the cylinders (which are parallel). The Figure P10.87 88.

In a demonstration known as the ballistics cart, a ball is projected vertically upward from a cart moving with constant velocity along the horizontal direction. The ball lands in the catching cup of the cart because both the cart and ball have the same horizontal component of velocity. What If? Now consider a ballistics cart on an incline making an angle with the horizontal as in Figure P10.89. The cart (including wheels) has a mass M and the moment of inertia of each of the two wheels is mR2/2. (a) Using conservation of energy (assuming no friction between cart and axles), and assuming pure rolling motion (no slipping), show that the acceleration of the cart along the incline is and vyi is the initial speed of the ball imparted to it by the spring in the cart. (c) Show that the distance d that the ball travels measured along the incline is d 2v yi sin g cos2 2 Figure P10.89 90. A spool of thread consists of a cylinder of radius R1 with end caps of radius R2 as in the end view shown in Figure P10.90. The mass of the spool, including the thread, is m and its moment of inertia about an axis through its center is I. The spool is placed on a rough horizontal surface so that it rolls without slipping when a force T acting to the right is applied to the free end of the thread. Show that the magnitude of the frictional force exerted by the surface on the spool is given by ax M gsin M 2m (b) Note that the x component of acceleration of the ball released by the cart is g sin . Thus, the x component of the cart's acceleration is smaller than that of the ball by the factor M/(M + 2m). Use this fact I mR1R2 f I mR 2 T 2 Determine the direction of the force of friction.
