A massless string is wrapped around a uniform solid cylinder with mass M = 10 kg and radius R = 0.40 m. One end of the string is attached to the cylinder and the free end is pulled tangentially by a force that maintains a constant tension T = 5 N . Find
(a) the angular acceleration
(b) the angular speed of the cylinder 5.0 s after the force is applied to the cylinder initially at rest.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
The string is always tangent to the surface of the cylinder. The angle between the tension and the radial vector is 90 degree. The torque ...
