Homework Statement
Massive spinning flywheels (disks) can be used for storing energy. Consider a flywheel with a diameter of 1.10 m and a mass of 510 kg. A constant force of magnitude F is applied tangentially to the rim of the flywheel to accelerate it from rest to 4.00 x 103 rev/min during...

I think kinetic friction is found by multiplying the friction coefficient by normal force. So the normal force must be found. Not really sure about tension.
Ok, I got it now. I realized that the speed of the center of mass was the same as the final velocity of the two cars, which happened to be the same answer to part a. Thanks for the help.
With the coefficient of kinetic friction, am I suppose to use it with normal force to find frictional force?
And also, I don't really understand how frictional force applies to deceleration.
I still don't understand the problem. I know that the moving coal car is moving at 2m/s and it hits the stationary coal car. But the problem does not specify which direction the moving coal car is coming from or how far it is initially.
I don't know if I could use the final velocity of the two...

A loaded coal car with a mass of 120 metric tons traveling at 2 m/s collides and couples with an empty, stationary coal car with a mass of 8 metric tons. (1 metric ton = 103 kg)
(c) What is the speed of the center of mass of the system of two cars throughout the...
