Queston for laws of motion

  1. Jul 16, 2013 #1
    A tangential force is appliied on pully hinged at its centre of gravity. will there be any reaction force at its center?? if yes then how much??? will it be same as applies force? practically it seems there would be no force at its center??
    and if force is applied from the both side say P1 and P2, both are in same direction and not same in magnitude then what will be the net force applied at its center??

    You have to give us a bit more detail. Are you assuming that the pulley is massless? Or does it have a non-zero moment of inertia? What is pulling the rope? What is on the other end of the rope? All these will affect whether and how much force is applied to the pulley.
