A spool has a mass of 8 kg and a radius of gyration (k
G
) of 0.35 m.
Cords
of negligible mass are wrapped around its inner hub and outer rim.
There
is no slipping. Find the angular acceleration (
α
) of the spool.

Note that I assumed all
accelerations are in the
positive direction – I’ll let
the algebra do the work.
