Statement of a problem № 10246


A 3-in.-radius drum is rigidly attached to a 5-in.-radius drum as shown. One of the drums rolls without sliding on the surface shown, and a cord is wound around the other drum. Knowing that at the instant shown end D of the cord has a velocity of 8 in./s and an acceleration of 30 in./s2, both directed to the left, determine the accelerations of Points A, B, and C of the drums.
