1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a floor there is a heavy duty uniform trap door that is hinged at one side the door has a mass if M = 25 kg a length from hinge to edge of L = 1.0 m, and rotational moment of inertia I = (ML^2)/3= 8.33 kg*m^2. Question 1: What upward Force must be applied to handle at the edge of the door in order to hold it stationary with an angle of 60 with respect to the floor? Question 2: The door released and allowed to swing closed. immediately after release what is the angular acceleration of the door? Question 3: What angular velocity does the door have just before it slams shut? The Attempt at a solution for question 1: T= r.m.g.sin(@) = 0.5 m x 25 kg x 9.8 m/s^2 x sin 60 = 106.09 N.m for question 2: T= I.alfa 106.09 = 8.33 . alfa alfa = 12.74 m/s^2 I really dont know how to do the question 3. is this seems ok so far to you. thanks.
