    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    A board rides on two driving drums. At the instant shown (*see attached), the board has the acceleration noted. If the board is not slipping on the drums and the total acceleration of the drum contact points is 3m/s[squared], the velocity in m/s of the board at this instant is closest to which answer choice?

    a. 0.8
    b. 0.9
    c. 0.6
    d. 1.2

    *Please see attachment for diagram and figures.

    Radius of drum r = 0.25 m

    Because, at the point of contact,
    acceleration = sqrt(tangential acceleration sqare + square of ...
