1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cord is wrapped around the rim of a solid uniform wheel 0.250 m in radius and of mass 9.20 kg. A steady horizontal pull of 40.0 N to the right is exerted on the cord, pulling it off tangentially from the wheel. The wheel is mounted on frictionless bearings on a horizontal axle through its center. Find the magnitude and direction of the force that the axle exerts on the wheel 2. Relevant equations Newtons laws 3. The attempt at a solution I understand that there are normal force and weight along y-axis. However i'm confused whether there is any x-component force exerted by the axle on the wheel. Kindly explain me??
