Question

The drive chain in a bicycle applies a torque of 0.850 N∙m to the wheel of the bicycle. The wheel has a mass of 0.750 kg and can be assumed to all be located on the rim, at a radius of 0.330 m. What is the angular acceleration of the wheel?

Answer #1

moment of inertia (I) = m.r^2 as mass is supposed to be at rim.

During a testing process, a worker in a factory mounts a bicycle
wheel on a stationary stand and applies a tangential resistive
force of 115 N to the tire's rim. The mass of the wheel is 1.40 kg
and, for the purpose of this problem, assume that all of this mass
is concentrated on the outside radius of the wheel. The diameter of
the wheel is 55.0 cm. A chain passes over a sprocket that has a
diameter of 9.25...

A bicycle wheel, of radius 0.3100 m and mass 2.000 kg
(concentrated on the rim), is rotating at 4.110 rev/s. After 41.00
s the wheel comes to a stop because of friction. What is the
magnitude of the average torque due to frictional forces? N · m

A bicycle wheel has a diameter of 64.2 cm and a mass of 1.82 kg.
Assume that the wheel is a hoop with all of the mass concentrated
on the outside radius. The bicycle is placed on a stationary stand
and a resistive force of 116 N is applied tangent to the rim of the
tire. (a) What force must be applied by a chain passing over a
9.04-cm-diameter sprocket in order to give the wheel an
acceleration of 4.56...

A bicycle wheel has a diameter of 63.4 cm and a mass of 1.83 kg.
Assume that the wheel is a hoop with all of the mass concentrated
on the outside radius. The bicycle is placed on a stationary stand
and a resistive force of 121 N is applied tangent to the rim of the
tire.
(a) What force must be applied by a chain passing over a
8.95-cm-diameter sprocket in order to give the wheel an
acceleration of 4.51...

The drive components of a two-speed bicycle are constructed as
follows:
• The rear wheel has a radius of 50 cm • The front gear has a
radius of 10 cm, and is connected to the pedals
• There are two rear gears: one with a radius of 5 cm (“high
gear”), and one with a radius of 10 cm (“low gear”)
• A chain connects the front gear to one of the rear gears; the
cyclist can choose which...

Suppose an automobile engine can produce 205 N⋅m of torque, and
assume this car is suspended so that the wheels can turn freely.
Each wheel acts like a 15.5 kg disk that has a 0.195 m radius. The
tires act like 2.1-kg rings that have inside radii of 0.19 m and
outside radii of 0.33 m. The tread of each tire acts like a 11.5-kg
hoop of radius 0.315 m. The 12-kg axle acts like a solid cylinder
that has...

A bicycle wheel has a mass of 2.0 kg and a radius of 60 cm. With
the wheel initially at rest, a torque of 0.36 N-m is then applied.
What is the angular speed of the tire after 5 seconds? The moment
of inertia of a wheel is mR2.
A. 0.5 rad/s
B. 1.0 rad/s
C. 1.5 rad/s
D. 2.5 rad/s
E. 5.0 rad/s

A potter’s wheel, a thick stone disk of radius 0.500 m and mass
100 kg, is freely rotating at 70.0 rev/min. The potter can stop the
wheel by pressing a wet rag against the rim and exerting a radially
inward force of 35.0 N. If the applied force slows the wheel down
with an angular acceleration of 0.875rad/s2 , calculate the torque
acting on the wheel and the coefficient of kinetic friction between
the wheel and the rag

A bicycle wheel in the shape of a hoop has a diameter of 1.00 m
and a weight of 37.0 N. The bicycle is placed on a stationary
stand. The wheel starts rotating from rest with a constant angular
acceleration of 2.20 rad/s2. Consider a dust particle stuck on the
rim of the wheel. (a) At t = 0.710 s, determine the magnitude of
the centripetal acceleration of the dust particle. m/s2 (b) At t =
0.710 s, determine the...

A student holds a bike wheel and starts it spinning with an
initial angular speed of 7.0 rotations per second. The wheel is
subject to some friction, so it gradually slows down. In the 10-s
period following the inital spin, the bike wheel undergoes 60.0
complete rotations.
Assuming the frictional torque remains constant, how much more
time ?ts will it take the bike wheel to come to a complete
stop?
The bike wheel has a mass of 0.725 kg and...
