Discussion 7: Name: solutions TAM212, Spring, 2003 The gear of radius R rolls on the horizontal rack. Pin G in the center of the gear engates a slot in the arm AB, which rotates at the constant angular velocity θ = ω counterclockwise as shown. Determine the angular velocity of the gear when ° = θ 60 . . If we let “W” refer the cylindrical wheel, “G” refer to its center, and “I” where it touches the surface, and we let “R” refer to the rod. () R v R v W G C G IC W I G ω = × ω + = × ω + = J K I r v v 0 v v v v We need W ω to find W ω . Since the two rigid bodies are not pinned together, we need the equation with the two frames of reference to relate the angular velocities of the two objects.
