As shown in the figure below, a string is wrapped around a uniform disk of mass M = 1.2 kg and radius R =0.06 m. (The moment of inertia of a uniform disk is (1/2)MR 2 .) Attached to the disk are four low mass rods of length b =0.09 m, each with a small mass m =0.8 kg at the end. The device is originally at rest on a nearly frictionless surface. You then pull the string with a constant force F =25 N. At the instant when the center of the disk has moved a distance d =0.043 m, a length w =0.024 m of string has unwound off the disk.

A. Explain briefly how to go solve for the motion of the device’s center of mass. How the CofM moves can be predicted by analyzing the corresponding point-particle system. Specifically, consider the net external force as acting on the device and the effect it has on K trans . Since distances are given instead of time intervals, we may calculate work more easily than impulse. So, it may be simpler to use the energy principle instead of the momentum principle.

B. At the later instant, what is the speed of the devices CofM? Example: Non-Zero Torque on System initial state final state Since we are interested in the motion its center of mass, focusing on the corresponding point-particle system will be productive.

Q3. Which of these equations correctly expresses the energy priniciple applied to our point-particle system? A. K rot + K trans = F(w+d) B. K rot = Fw C. K rot + K trans = Fd D. K trans = Fw E. K trans = Fd

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
