A Cylinder Rotating at an Angular Speed of 50 Rev/S is Brought in Contact with an Identical Stationary Cylinder. - Physics


A cylinder rotating at an angular speed of 50 rev/s is brought in contact with an identical stationary cylinder. Because of the kinetic friction, torques act on the two cylinders accelerating the stationary one and decelerating the moving one. If the common magnitude of the acceleration and deceleration be one revolution per second square, how long will it take before the two cylinders have equal angular speed?

After t seconds, let the angular velocity of two cylinders be ω.

For the first cylinder,

\[\omega_0  = 50 \text{ rev/s,}\alpha = 1\text{ rev/ s}^2\]

\[\therefore   \omega = 50 - \alpha t\]

\[ \Rightarrow   t = \frac{\left( \omega - 50 \right)}{- 1}\]

For the second cylinder,

\[\omega_0  = 0,   \alpha = 1 \text{ rev/s}^2\]

\[\therefore   \omega = \alpha t\]

\[ \Rightarrow   t = \frac{\omega}{1}\]

On equating the value of `t,` we get

\[\omega = \left( \frac{\omega - 50}{- 1} \right)\] 

\[ \Rightarrow 2\omega = 50\] 

\[ \Rightarrow \omega = 25\text{ rev/s}\] 

\[ \therefore   t = \frac{25}{1}  s = 25s\] 


  Is there an error in this question or solution?
