1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A solid cylinder is attached by a rope on its center.It has mass of 5kg and is lying on a table.The other end of the rope is a block of mass m2 which is not on the table .if the coeficient of friction between cylinder and table is 0.2.Find the maximum mass 2 so that the cylinder rolls without slipping. 2. Relevant equations F=ma τ=I α 3. The attempt at a solution Because it is rolling without slipping;f=1/2*5*a T-f=5*a m2g-T=m2a and the a of cylinder centre is the same as a of the object.but i am stuck with bot knowing the accelleration.And is the coerficient of friction of any use ?
