ME 244 Assignment 8 Spring 2010 Department of Mechanical Engineering, Yeditepe University Due date: 07 May 2010, Friday - 5 PM Policy: The assignments should be done by each student individually, not as group work. The due date and time is Friday 5 PM, one week after the assignment is given. No late submissions are accepted. The assignments should be submitted to the Teaching Assistant of the course, Batuhan Baturalp (Room A702). 1. The wheel is rotating with the angular velocity and angular acceleration at the instant shown. Determine the angular velocity and angular acceleration of the rod at this instant.The rod slides freely through the smooth collar. 2. The frustum is formed by rotating the shaded area around the x axis. Determine the moment of inertia I x and express the result in terms of the total mass m of the frustum. The frustum has a constant density

Unformatted text preview: ρ . 3. The forklift travels forward with a constant speed of 2 . 7 m/s. Determine the short-est stopping distance without causing any of the wheels to leave the ground. The forklift has a weight of 1000 kg with center of gravity at G 1 , and the load weighs 4500 N ( ≈ 450 kg) with center of gravity at G 2 . Neglect the weight of the wheels. 4. The 150-kg wheel has a radius of gyration about its center of mass O of k O = 250 mm.If it rotates counterclockwise with an angular velocity of w = 1200 rev/min and the tensile force applied to the brake band at A is T A = 2000 N, determine the tensile force T B in the band at B so that the wheel stops in 50 revolutions after T A and T B are applied. 1 Figure 1: Questions 1 and 2 Figure 2: Question 3 and 4 2...
