Let the mass of the basketball be m and app Solution law to find a system of simultaneous equations that we can solve f (a) We can begin by writing down problem statement. called for in the Newton’s y laws for the ball, including the torques: Fx = −mg sin θ + Ff = −ma Fy = −mg cos θ + Fn = 0 τi = Ff R = Iα. Furthermore, since the ball is rolling without slipping, we have that a = αR. So, we have enough to solve this system of equations. Plugging in Ff = Iα/R = Ia/R2 to the first equation and solving for a gives a= r Fn m x r 0 r f r mg θ mg sin θ . m + I/R2 nd ∑ ∑F ( of inertia of the spherical law in I = 2 The momenta) Apply Newton’s 2shell is just both mR2 , and soFx 3 translational and mg sin θ rotational form to 3 = g sin θ. a= 2 m + 2m/3R 5 the ball...
