Write the general mathematical relation that exists between the total (vector) angular momentum L r of a system about a point and the net external (vector) torque r acting on the system about the same point. 2. A spinning bicycle wheel of total mass M and radius R is suspended from a rope at point P on its axle, a distance s from the wheels center of mass (CM). (a) Write an expression for the magnitude of the torque about point P produced by the wheels weight (in terms of M and s ). = ____________________. What is the direction of this torque r as a vector quantity? (b) What torque about point P is produced by the tension force exerted by the rope?...
