Question

A rope of negligible mass is wound round a hollow cylinder of mass 3 kg and radius 40 cm. What is the angular acceleration of the cylinder if the rope is pulled with a force of 30 N? What is the linear acceleration of the rope? Assume that there is no slipping.

Solution

Mass of the hollow cylinder, m = 3 kg

Radius of the hollow cylinder, r = 40 cm = 0.4 m

Applied force, F = 30 N

The moment of inertia of the hollow cylinder about its geometric axis:

I = mr2

= 3 × (0.4)2 = 0.48 kg m2

Torque, t = F x r

= 30 × 0.4 = 12 Nm

For angular acceleration `alpha`, torque is also given by the relation:

`t = Ialpha`

`alpha = t/I = 12/0.48`

`= 25 " rad s"^(-2)`

Linear acceleration = `ralpha  = 0.4 xx 25 = 10 ms^(-2)`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
