one end of a weightless rope is tied to the ceiling of a building and the other end is wrapped around a uniform solid cylinder that has a radius R and mass M. The cylinder is then released and falls toward the floor. The moment of inertia of a solid cylinder about an axis through its center of mass is: I=0.5MR^2(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
