Each of the go-cart’s front wheels weighs 5 lbs and has a mass moment of inertia of 0.01 slug-ft 2 . The two rear wheels and axle weigh 40 lbs with an I of 0.1 slug-ft 2 . The total weight of the go cart and driver is 240 lbs (including the wheels). The CG of the driver and cart (not including the wheels) is shown in the figure. If the engine exerts a torque of 12 ft-lbs on the rear axle, what is the go-cart’s acceleration? Start with the Wheels RB Kinetics, Use Newton’s second law. Draw FBD, mad, but of what? Next write the equations of motion for each of the wheels. - Do front… Do FBD and mad for the cart body. EOM. Problem Type: Find: Given: W F = 5 lbs, I F = 0.01 slug-ft
