Unformatted text preview: The yo-yo can rotate freely about a horizontal axis through its centre. It has a mass of 2 kg, a moment of inertia about the axis of 0.03 kg-mz. and inner and outer radii of n = 0.1m and r2 = 0.2m. Masses m1 = 1.0kg and m2 = 1.5kg hang from cords which are wrapped round the inner and outer radii, respectively. (a) How are the velocities of In] and m; related? (b) Write down an expression for the kinetic energy of the system, and hence determine the acceleration of mg. (a) v; = (OR, v1= (or ifvz = v, v1= v12 (v2 down, V] pp) (b) K = m1v12/2 + m2V22/2 + 1032/2 with m = v/R = 0.5(1.5v2’ + 0.5(v/2)2 + 0.5(0.03)(v/R)2 = 0.75v2 + 0.12512 + 0.375v2 = 1.25v2 Let 1112 fall a distance h, then 1111 rises h/2.

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.
