1. ### Angular Acceleration when accounting n-reference frames

Hello, I understand the equation that describes the angular accelerator when 3 reference frames are involved is: Now I would like to ask what is the resulting equation when accounting more than 3 reference frames, i.e. when n-reference frames are involved. Thank you.
2. ### I Angular velocity of a rod and what formula to use while solving.

The question is: A uniform rod of length ##L## stands vertically upright on a smooth floor in a position of unstable equilibrium. The rod is then given a small displacement at the top and tips over. What is the rod's angular velocity when it makes an angle of 30 degrees with the floor, assuming...
3. ### The final velocity of a ball rolling while slipping.

Here is the problem statement along with the figure. Here, I take the right-ward and anti-clockwise directions to be positive. After the ball collides with the wall, its angular velocity remains the same and its velocity changes direction while remaining the same in magnitude. Using the...
4. ### Highest point of a pendulum

I have tried to use the intial velocity v=(2gH)^(1/2) and tried to use conservation of energy, using potential energy to find the maximum height but still can't arrive to the answer provided. Don't know what concepts are relevant here, apparently I can't use velocity neither cosine or sine. I...
5. ### B Why is static friction necessary for pure rolling?

Suppose a cylinder is launched on a horizontal frictional surface such that it has initial translational velocity v and zero angular velocity .the kinetic friction would be applied between the contact points of the cylinder and the surface, opposite to the direction of the translational motion...
6. ### Constant Circular Motion Not Really Constant

I was pondering my practice of talking about circular motion in the horizontal direction and the vertical direction. But I'd often would see in books, notes, and the internet that we assume constant velocity for the vertical case. However, when one thinks about the forces at different points in...
7. ### Getting the angular velocity using the angular acceleration graph

The answer here is A What i did is getting the area as follows, 2×4×1/2 +3×-6×1/2 +4×-6 = -29 and then use this Δω=ωf-ωi -29=ωf-5 ωf=24 but there is no such choice.
8. ### Component forces of a pendulum

I refer to the website below (for more information): http://www1.lasalle.edu/~blum/p106wks/pl106_Pendulum.htm#:~:text=The forces acting on the,the tension of the string.&text=The net radial force leads,is v2/r.) P.S. I'll insert my specific questions in the following paragraphs in this format...
9. ### Rotation of two cylinders inclined at an angle

A single pair of points will be in contact between P and Q. The frictional force will try to make the velocity of these points equal. Say the final angular velocity of Q is ωq. The velocity of points in contact can never be equal because of difference in directions of ωq and ωp. If I break...
10. ### A cart with two cylindrical wheels connected by a rod

Firstly I only consider one of the wheels. This wheel consists of a big wheel (black) with mass M and radius R and inside it a circular region with a negative mass (-m) and radius R/2. (I assume they have same mass density but with opposite signs. I do this because I don't know where the center...
11. ### Rotating Sphere: Conceptual Question

As shown in figure there's a homogeneous solid sphere. It is rotating about axis which is passing through point P directed perpendicular to the plane of paper. (In short like a pendulum). I'm neglecting gravity and assuming a force F which is directed perpendicular to the string. (The string...
12. ### How Does Torque Apply to a Rotating Rod on a Frictionless Surface?

Homework Statement A uniform rod is released on a friction-less horizontal surface from rest. Initially, the rod makes an angle θ = 60° with the horizontal. What is the acceleration of the center of mass of the rod, just after release? Homework Equations Torque = Moment of Inertia × Angular...
13. ### Rotational moment of inertia for 3 balls on a pipe

Homework Statement Homework EquationsThe Attempt at a Solution i just don't know from where to take the R which is colored with brown, in the 2(MR^2), what is the R here exactly, because i took the radius of the sphere , but i get different answer althought it's near.
14. ### Is Constant Linear Velocity Possible in Rotating Particles?

If talking about a particle rotating around an axis away from it by r. if the particle is moving with constant angular velocity ω. is the linear velocity constant or no? Now what I know is that since we have Vt= ωr, so r doesn't change, as well as ω, so Vt is said to be constant. but I think...
15. ### How long would it take to stop the rotation of the Earth?

Imagine a person is moving at the equator in the direction opposite of the Earth's spin. How long would it take them to stop the rotation of the Earth? Assume: the person's "weight" = 90.718 kg, they person's speed = 1m/s, The Earth's "weight" = 5.972*10^24 kg, the angular velocity of the...
16. ### A particle P2 chases particle P1 with constant speed.

Homework Statement [/B] A particle P1 moves with a constant velocity v along x-axis, starting from origin. Another particle P2 chases particle P1 with constant speed v, starting from the point (0, d). Both motion begin simultaneously. Find - 1. Initial acceleration of P2. 2. Ultimate...

### Force exerted on counter-rotating wheels by a tennis ball

Homework Statement I am trying to figure out what torque is applied to 2 wheels counter-rotating at 4,000 rpm when a tennis ball is squeezed between them and then propelled forward (because the wheels are counter-rotating).This is how a tennis ball machine propels a ball forward. I know the...
18. ### A How can I find the collision time of 2 ellipsoids that rotate

I have 2 ellipsoids: Ax^2/a^2+Ay^2/b^2+Az^2/c^2=1; (*a,b,c>0 constants*) Bx^2/a^2+By^2/b^2+Bz^2/c^2=1; Ellipsoid A rotates around axis [wax;way;waz] (unit vector) with an infinite speed; Ellipsoid B rotates around axis [wbx;wby;wbz] (unit vector) with an infinite speed; [Dx;Dy;Dz] is the vector...
