Discussion 9: Name: TAM212, Spring, 2003 A 1 slug homogeneous cylindrical disk is given the counterclockwise velocity of 4 rad/s with the spring unstretched. The spring constant, k, equals 3 lb/ft. If the disk does not slip while rolling, how far will its center point move to left before returning to the right? T W = (1) () = dt W i i v F v v , where the only force doing work is that due to the spring. (Since the wheels are rolling, friction doesn’t do work here) () ( ) 2 1 2 2 2 / 1 δ δ = k W . Note; 0 1 = δ ; C x = δ 2 , where x is positive to the left, and C is the center of mass of
