Unformatted text preview: blocks which are constrained to move along the circular path and the rod AB . Use this page to continue Problem 1. 2) (25 points) The ladder has a mass m and rests against the smooth wall and ground. Determine its angular acceleration as a function of only when it is released and allowed to slide downward. For the calculation, treat the ladder as a slender rod. Use this page to continue Problem 2. 3) (20 points) The 50-lb wheel has a radius of gyration about its center of gravity G of k G = 0.7 ft. If it rolls without slipping, determine its angular velocity when it has rotated clockwise 90 degrees from the position shown. The spring AB has a stiffness k = 1.20 lb/ft and an unstretched length of 0.5 ft. The wheel is released from rest....
