    Electric Field Problem in a Tube

    Homework Statement An alpha particle (a helium nucleus) is traveling along the positive x-axis at 1425 m/s when it enters a cylindrical tube of radius 0.700 m centered on the x-axis. Inside the tube is a uniform electric field of 5.00x10-4 N/C pointing in the negative y-direction. How far does...

    Rotational Motion/Pulley Problem

    Homework Statement Two uniform disks with the same mass are connected by a light inextensible string supported by a massless pulley, on a frictionless axis. The string is attached to a point on the circumference of disk A. The string is wound around disk B so that the disk will rotate like a...

    Rotation Problem/Total Kinetic Energy

    Homework Statement A spool of mass 8.67kg and radius 4.58m is unwound by a constant force 48.1N pulling on the massless rope wrapped around it. Assume the moment of inertia of the spool about O is 3/4mr^2 and it rolls w/o slipping. When the center of the spool has moved a distance d, find the...

    Rolling Without Slipping/Loop Problem

    Homework Statement A small, solid sphere of mass 0.6kg and radius 27 cm rolls without slipping along the track consisting of slope (at an angle of 60degrees from horizontal) and loop-the-loop with radius 2.65m at the end of the slope. It starts from rest near the top of the track at a height...

    Angular Speed

    Homework Statement A uniform disk is set into rotation with an initial angular speed about its axis through its center. While still rotating at this speed, the disk is placed in contact with a horizontal surface and released. What is the angular speed of the disk once pure rolling takes place...

    Angular Momentum Problem

    Homework Statement The problem asks to calculate the angular momentum for a metallic bob that is suspended from the ceiling by a thread of negligible mass. The angle between the thread and the vertical is 30degrees. It is also given that the mass of the bob is 7 kg and the length of the thread...
