Statement of a problem № 11304


Multiple-Concept Example 10 offers useful background for problems like this. A cylinder is rotating about an axis that passes through the center of each circular end piece. The cylinder has a radius of 0.0830 m, an angular speed of 76.0 rad/s, and a moment of inertia of 0.615 kg ∙ m2. A brake shoe presses against the surface of the cylinder and applies a tangential frictional force to it. The frictional force reduces the angular speed of the cylinder by a factor of two during a time of 6.40 s. (a) Find the magnitude of the angular deceleration of the cylinder. (b) Find the magnitude of the force of friction applied by the brake shoe.
