1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data problem #62 2. Relevant equations Torque = F * radius Tangential accel = radius * alpha w = mg Kinematic equations for linear motion 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to find the net torque and go from there. For clockwise torque I got T = 10 * .25 = 2.5 Nm For ccw torque I got T = 1.5g * .25 = 3.675 Nm For net torque I then get ccwT - cwT = 1.175 Nm I used that with Torque = I * alpha to find alpha. 1.175 = .5 * m * r^2 * alpha 1.175 = .0625 * alpha 18.8 = alpha Then to get tangential accel I did Accel = .25 * 18.8 accel = 4.7 m/s^2 Plug that into kinematics .3 = .5 * 4.7 * t^2 .357 s = t This is wrong however, the answer is .56 s. Can anyone tell me where I went wrong? Thanks.
