a cylindrical can with mass = 3kg is elevated from a trough at point X that is at the 0 degree mark on a circular ramp with radius .6m. The can is elevated by a rotating rod moving at a constant 0.5 rad/s. determine the force on the can when θ(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

=30 degrees. The distance r from the pivot of the rod to the can is r = 1.2cosθ m . the distance from the pivot of the rod to the 90 degree mark of the circular ramp is .6m.
