2.032 DYNAMICS Fall 2004 Problem Set No. 5 Out : Wednesday, October 13, 2004 Due : Wednesday, October 20, 2004 at the beginning of class Problem 1 Consider the motion of a car, as shown in the figure below. (Out of the four wheels only two are visible.) The mass of the body of the car is m 3 , and each wheel has radius r and mass m . The coefficient of static friction is μ 0 i.e., the tangential force between the wheel and the ground is never greater than μ 0 times the normal force. The torque transmitted from the body of the car to the rear wheel set is M 0 . (a) Assuming pure rolling, use the work-energy principle to find the acceleration of the car. (b) What is the largest M 0 for which the car does not slip? 1
