Question

1. A yo-yo consists of two solid disks, each of mass M and radius 3R. The two disks are connected by a rod of radius R and negligible mass.

a.) The moment of inertia of the yo-yo about its axis of symmetry is of the form ???^2 where ? is a number. What is ??

b.) Draw the extended free body diagram for the yo-yo and use it to write Newton's 2nd law in terms of the magnitude of the acceleration of the center of mass of the yoyo. Be careful with the mass and pay attention to the direction of the acceleration,

c.) Take the axis of rotation to be the center of mass of the yo-yo. Use your extended free body diagram to write the rotational second law in terms of the magnitude of the angular acceleration ? and the moment of inertia I of the yo-yo. Pay attention to the direction of the acceleration.

d.) Use the relation between the acceleration acm and angular acceleration ? and the relations above to determine the acceleration of the yo-yo.

e.) What is the tension in the string as the yo-yo falls?

f.) Starting from rest, how long does it take for the yo-yo to fall a distance of 0.8 meters?

Comment: the point where the string contacts the yo-yo is momentarily at rest as the string unwinds. Since power P = ?⃗ ⋅ ?⃗ , the fact that ? = 0 at this point, implies that the tension generates zero power and therefore does no work.

1. Read Section 11-3: we will consider the motion of a yo-yo
moving downward on its string.
(a) In terms of the yo-yo’s mass m, its moment of inertia about
the center-of-mass I, and the length of the string l, what is the
angular speed ? of a “sleeping” yo-yo that started from rest and
just finished rolling all the way down its string? You may assume
that kinetic friction between the yo-yo and the string has not yet
significantly...

A yoyo is consists of two disks each for radius .1m and mass
.25kg attached by a massless .02m diameter axle. A .8m long string
is wrapped around axle. The yoyo is released from rest and allowed
to unwind down the string spinning faster and faster. What is the
linear velocity of the yoyo when the string has unrolled its entire
length?
b. When the yoyo reaches the end of the rope, it begins to
travel upward again like a...

A small, solid cylinder with mass = 20 kg and radius = 0.10 m
starts from rest and rotates without friction about a fixed axis
through its center of mass. A string is wrapped around the
circumference of the cylinder and pulled using a constant force F.

A yo-yo is made by wrapping a string several times around a
solid cylinder with mass M=9kg and Radius=5cm. You hold the end of
the string stationary while releasing the cylinder. The string
unwinds but does not slip or stretch as the cylinder drops and
rotates. 1) Use energy to find the speed in vcm (cm/s) of the
centre of mass of the solid cylinder after it has dropped a
distance h equal to h=23cm 2) Find the acceleration of...

A solid sphere of mass, M, and radius, R, is
rigidly attached to a strong thin rod of radius r that
passes through the sphere at a distance of R/2. A string
