A cylindrical satellite of radius R is spinning at a frequency f . It must be stopped so that a space shuttle crew can make repairs. Two small jets each with a thrust F are mounted tangent to the satellites surface as shown. How long must they fire to bring the satellite to rest? ote that the moment of inertia for a ylinder is the same as that for a disk! Does this result make sense? t and 2 RF 2 f I t 2 RF I t t 2 fMR 2 /2 2 RF fMR 2 F Example: Rotational Dynamics Example: Rotational Dynamics A solid cylinder of mass M and radius R is used to support a massless rope and a bucket of mass m . Find the rate of acceleration of the bucket into the well. First consider the free body diagram for the bucket: Next the free body diagram for the cylinder.

Find the rate of acceleration of the bucket into the well. Substituting for T to solve for a : Note that the acceleration is reduced due to the rotational inertia of the cylinder. a 2 T / M 2 m g a / M a 1 2 m M 2 m M g a 2 m M 2 m g Does this result make sense?
