As you come in, please set clicker to channel 44 and then answer the following question (before the lecture starts). Bug the Professor if he forgets to start the clicker software. Assuming the center of mass of the bicycle and rider are moving at +5 m/s (relative to the ground), how fast is the top edge of the wheel moving (relative to the ground)? A. +5 m/s B. 0 m/s C. -5 m/s D. +10 m/s Rolling = Translation + Rotation

Topics for Today Rolling = Translation + Rotation (11-1) Forces and Kinetic energy of rolling (11-2) The Yo-Yo (11-3) Review of cross product (3-3) Torque as a vector (11-4) Angular momentum as a vector (11-5)
For a wheel rolling smoothly with no slip, the point of contact has zero velocity relative to the ground. We analyze rolling as a combination of rotation and translation. The wheel axle moves with the center of mass of the bicycle, velocity = v . The wheel rotates to keep its bottom at zero velocity relative to the ground, . Rolling = Translation + Rotation

Kinetic energy = rotation + translation Force – since the point of contact is not moving, the friction that acts is a static frictional force = f . Torque = Differentiating , we find . The translational acceleration is related to the angular acceleration of the wheel.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
