- Homework Statement:
A constant counter-clockwise moment of M = 110 N-m is also applied to the spool. The spool and the cable are initially at rest. The spool has a mass of 550 kg, an outer radius of 1.5 m, and a radius of gyration of 1.3 m. Assume 2 SF for all givens.
Refer now to Figure B where the spool is allowed to roll on the ground, the tension T has been removed. If the spool rolls without slipping and has the same applied moment M as described above, what is the linear acceleration of the spool? Take right to be positive.
(include units with answer)
- Relevant Equations:
torque = I*a
a= r*angular acceleration + angular velocity^2*r
My angular acceleration is wrong but all I had done was torque which was 110 NM / I = 930 kg-m^2 and calculated 0.118 rad/s^2. But because this is wrong I am stuck and I have no idea how to find angular velocity to plug into the equation to find linear acceleration.
