A force vector F is applied at the other end, at an angle θ to the rod. L m F θ If vector F were to be applied perpendicular to the rod, at what distance d from the axis of rotation should it be applied in order to produce the same torque vector τ ? 1. d = L 2. d = L tan θ 3. d = √ 2 L 4. d = L sin θ correct 5. d = L cos θ Explanation: The torque the force generates is τ = F L sin θ . Thus the distance is L sin θ . 002 10.0 points Consider two masses of 4 . 6 kg and 6 . 5 kg connected by a string passing over a pulley having a moment of inertia 9 . 4 g · m 2 about its axis of rotation, as in the figure below. The string does not slip on the pulley, and the system is released from rest.

Assume mechanical energy is con served during the motion. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 0 . 908583 m / s. Explanation: Let : I = 9 . 4 g · m 2 = 0 . 0094 kg · m 2 , R = 0 . 23 m , m 1 = 4 . 6 kg , m 2 = 6 . 5 kg , and h = 25 cm = 0 . 25 m .

Since K i = 0 (the system is initially at rest), the masses have a common speed and v = Rω , Δ K = K f K i reyes (mr29667) – Homework 11 – chelikowsky – (59005) 2 = 1 2 m 1 v 2 + 1 2 m 2 v 2 + 1 2 I ω 2 , = 1 2 m 1 v 2 + 1 2 m 2 v 2 + 1 2 I parenleftBig v R parenrightBig 2 = 1 2 parenleftbigg m 1 + m 2 + I R 2 parenrightbigg v 2 .
