Calculate the net torque about the axle of the wheel shown in the figure below. Assume that a friction torque of 0.44 m-N opposes the motion and that F = 18 N.
In the figure below, m = 1.4 kg and M = 2.5 kg.
(a) Calculate the moment of inertia of the array of point objects shown in the figure about the vertical axis.
(b) Calculate the moment of inertia of the array of point objects shown in the figure about the horizontal axis.
Assume the objects are wired together by very light rigid pieces of wire. The array is rectangular and it is split through the middle by the horizontal axis.
About which axis would it be harder to accelerate this array?
the horizontal axis
the vertical axis
