Question

A string passing over a pulley has a 3.75-kg mass hanging from one end and a 2.75-kg mass hanging from the other end. The pulley is a uniform solid cylinder of radius 4.9 cmcm and mass 0.80 kg.

A) If the bearings of the pulley were frictionless, what would be the acceleration of the two masses?

B) In fact, it is found that if the heavier mass is given a downward speed of 0.25 m/s , it comes to rest in 7.0 s. What is the average frictional torque acting on the pulley?

A hanging weight, with a mass of m1 = 0.370
kg, is attached by a string to a block with mass
m2 = 0.850 kg as shown in the figure below. The
string goes over a pulley with a mass of M = 0.350 kg. The
pulley can be modeled as a hollow cylinder with an inner radius of
R1 = 0.0200 m, and an outer radius of
R2 = 0.0300 m; the mass of the spokes is
negligible. As...

Two masses are connected by a massless string, passing over a
massless, frictionless pulley as shown in the diagram. Mass
m1 = 5 kg, and is released from rest at a
height h = 4 m above the table. Mass
m2 = 3 kg, and starts at rest on the table.
Ignore friction and air resistance. Take the system to be the two
masses and the earth. What is the potential energy of this system,
in Joules? Next, you let...

Two masses are connected by a light string passing over a light,
frictionless pulley as in Figure P5.63. The m1
= 4.75 kg object is released from rest at a point 4.00 m above the
floor, where the m2 = 3.20 kg object rests.
Please define all variables in solving
(a) Determine the speed of each object when the two pass each
other.
(b) Determine the speed of each object at the moment the 4.75 kg
mass hits the floor....

A hanging weight, with a mass of m1 = 0.365
kg, is attached by a cord to a block with mass
m2 = 0.815 kg as shown in the figure below. The
cord goes over a pulley with a mass of M = 0.350 kg. The
pulley can be modeled as a hollow cylinder with an inner radius of
R1 = 0.0200 m, and an outer radius of
R2 = 0.0300 m; the mass of the spokes is
negligible. As...

A hanging weight, with a mass of m1 = 0.355
kg, is attached by a rope to a block with mass
m2 = 0.845 kg as shown in the figure below. The
rope goes over a pulley with a mass of M = 0.350 kg. The
pulley can be modeled as a hollow cylinder with an inner radius of
R1 = 0.0200 m, and an outer radius of
R2 = 0.0300 m; the mass of the spokes is
negligible. As...

(a) The combined mass of a man and his bicycle is 90 kg. He
cycles up a hill with incline 1 : 10 at a velocity of 4 m s−1 . If
his power output is 500W, find the frictional force acting assuming
that it is constant.
(b) A block A of mass 5m lies on a rough inclined plane of angle
α where cos(α) = 4/5 with coefficient of friction µ. It is
connected via a light inextensible string,...

1. For a stationary ball of mass m = 0.200 kg hanging from a
massless string, draw arrows (click on the “Shapes” tab) showing
the forces acting on the ball (lengths can be arbitrary, but get
the relative lengths of each force roughly correct). For this case
of zero acceleration, use Newton’s 2nd law to find the
magnitude of the tension force in the string, in units of Newtons.
Since we will be considering motion in the horizontal xy plane,...
