Homework Help: Kinematics of Rotational Motion (Gears)

  1. May 14, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Since
    Gear A
    --------
    Vi=0
    t=12s
    θ=40∏

    as given in the question, can I assume that Vi=0 t=12s for Gear B/Drum C as well?
    If not why?


    Thanks..

    You can apply rotational and translational kinematic.
    For question (d) the question is displacement, answer given velocity
