- A wheel (mass M, radius R) rolls with speed v and angular velocity w (v=ωR) and collides elastically with a wall. Immediately after the collision it has v away from the wall, but the same ω as before – so it’s skidding, not rolling.
Friction at the floor will eventually re-establish rolling motion, by doing negative work on the system and applying a torque that will change ω.
What is the new speed v’ away from the wall when rolling motion is re-established?
Answer by RickB
That's an interesting question! First, let's set up direction conventions. Let's say: * The wall is on the left, so the wheel bounces off to the right. Let's call "rightward" the positive linear direction. * Let's call "clockwise" the positive angular direction. (That means the wheel's rotation is negative immediately after the bounce.) During skidding, the force of friction is more or less constant (given by: (normal force)×(coef. of sliding friction)), so we can say that "Ff" is the (constant) force of friction during the skidding phase. The force Ff produces a torque on the wheel, in the amount of: τ = (Ff)R. (This is a positive torque, since Ff points to the left and therefore tends to drive the wheel clockwise.) We know that the angular acceleration is given by: α = τ/I = (Ff)R/I where "I" is the wheel's moment of inertia. I'm not sure what kind of wheel this is, but its moment of inertial can be represented as: I = βmR², for some "β" that depends on how the wheel's mass is distributed. (It's some constant between 0 and 1.) So we can write: α = (Ff)/(βmR) At the same time, the ball's linear acceleration is: a = -Ff/m (Here we use negative Ff, since the force points toward the left) With these two values, we can write the ball's angular and linear velocities as a function of time: ω(t) = ω0 + αt = ω0 + (Ff)t/(βmR) (where ω0 is the ball's angular velocity right after collision) and: v(t) = v0 + at = v0 + (−Ff/m)t (where v0 is the ball's linear velocity right after collision) We are also given that ω0 = −v0/R, so we can rewrite the ω(t) equation as: ω(t) = −v0/R + (Ff)t/(βmR) Now, at some time t′, rolling is re-established. That means: v(t′) = ω(t′)R or: v0 + (-Ff/m)t′ = −v0 + (Ff)t′/(βm) From which: t′ = 2(v0)mβ/[Ff(1+β)] Now plug that value back into the "v(t)" equation: v′ = v(t′) = v0 + (-Ff/m)2(v0)mβ/[Ff(1+β)] = v0 - 2(v0)β/(1+β) = v0(1 - 2β/(1+β)) = v0(1-β)/(1+β) So for example, if you assume that the wheel has a uniform density, then β=½, in which case v′ = v0/3.
- I own 1 unisex deep v and 1 unisex regular v-neck. I know that the regular v-neck runs slightly bigger than the deep, but how do they compare to the regular t-shirts as far as fit? I wear an xs in both v-necks for reference.
Answer by Benjamin
The fit of most of the crew necks (2001, BB401, TR401, 6401) is closer to the regular v neck (2456) Go with XS in unisex styles and a S in womens.
- What current would flow in an ordinary 110 V household circuit, if a 1210 W hair drier and a 700 W microwave oven were operating simultaneously on this line?
Answer - 17.36 A
How much current would the hair drier and microwave from the previous question draw, if they were connected to the 110 V line in series?
Answer by Kim
IF you assume they act like simple resistors, then you can figure out their individual resistances using P = I^2 R. In the first part, you know P and I. Once you know their resistances, when you put them in series you add their resistances. So then you can find I from I = V/R. But I'm not sure these devices will really act like pure resistors because they have motors in them. There could be an inductive component.
I did not realize that when I went from my local cable company that I would be getting those great music channels on my new satellite programming. I was so excited because I was actually getting the satellite radio that a lot of people pay a lot of money for. However, this was included in the large package that I was paying a lot of money for. I was happy to see that one of my favorite radio talk show hosts was even included in my http://directsavingstv.com/ package and I could not believe that they would be able to include him in the package that I was getting. Instead of listening to the local news every morning after the kids went to school, I would put on his channel and listen to him as I read or did a lot of the housework, I was so happy and it seemed to make me in a better place each day.
My husband was happy when he came home from work and he saw that we also had the seasons channel. The seasons channel plays a lot of holiday music that is appropriate with the season of the year. We love Christmas music and they started to play the music in late October, which was just great with us. We started to sing carols on Halloween and it continued for the next few months. We noticed that when we ate dinner as a family at the dinner table that we were all enjoying whatever channel was on at the time. The little kids also enjoyed the kids station that had kids singing popular songs that were appropriate for their age, it was such a great deal for us and we are enjoying every minute of it, no matter what the cost is.Check This Link
