A uniform board of mass m and length L is pivoted on one end and is supported in the horizontal position by a rope attached to the other end. Another rope, attached to the board a distance L/3 from the pivot point, is being pulled straight down with a constant force of magnitude F. Suddenly, the rope attached to the end of the board breaks. Find the angular accelerationalpha of the board immediately after the rope breaks. Express our answer in terms of the given quantities and appropriate constants. You may or may not use all given quantities.

RESPONSE;
Note 1. Let the pivot be the axis about which net torque and angular acceleration and moment of inertia all exist after the rope at distance L breaks.
Note 2. After the end rope breaks, the only existing forces are mg at distance 0.5 L ...

Solution Summary

The answer gives the angular acceleration alpha of the uniform board, right after the rope breaks. Parameters of mass, length, and distance are given, with a constant force of magnitude, and, in using the properties of torques, the alpha is thus determined.

In a pulley system, the time of descent of a 100 gram mass is found to be 35 seconds. The vertical distance is given as 120 cms. The radius of the pulley (in the form of a disc) is 5 cms. Mass of the pulley is unknown. Determine (a) angularacceleration of the pulley (b) number of revolutions it makes during this time (c) To

A mass attached to a 59.7 cm long string starts from rest and is rotated 32 times in 68.0 s before reaching a final angular speed. Determine the angularacceleration of the mass, assuming that it is constant.

A slender rod of mass Mr has a disk of mass Mo fastened to it at its end. It is pinned at 0 - a "frictionless" pin. The circular frequency in rad/s of the system for small oscillations is what?

A uniform rod of mass M = 5.18 kg and length L = 1.20 m can pivot freely (i.e., we ignore friction) about a hinge attached to a wall, as seen in the figure attached in a Word doc. The rod is held horizontally and then released. Determine the angularacceleration of the rod at the moment of relea

Learning Goal: To understand the meaning of the variables that appear in the equations for rotational kinematics with constant angularacceleration.
Rotational motion with a constant nonzero acceleration is not uncommon in the world around us. For instance, many machines have spinning parts. When the machine is turned on or o

A heavy flywheel is accelerated (rotationally) by a motor that provides constant torque and therefore a constant angularaccelerationalpha. The flywheel is assumed to be stationary at time t = 0 in Parts A, B, and C of this problem.
a). Find the time t_10 it takes to accelerate the flywheel to 10.0 rps (revolutions per secon

A centrifuge is used for training astronaunts to withstand large accelerations. It consists of a chamber (in which the astronaunt sits) that is fixed to the end of a long horizontal and rigid pole. The arrangement is rotated about an axis perpendicular to the pole's free end. Such a centrifuge starts from rest and has an angular
