1. If a disk rolls on a rough surface without slipping, the
   acceleration af the center of gravity (G) will _________ and
   the friction force will be ______.
   A) not be equal to a r ;           B) be equal to a r ;
      less than sN                      equal to kN
   C) be equal to a r ; less than sN D) None of the above.

2. If a rigid body experiences general plane motion, the sum of
   the moments of external forces acting on the body about any
   point P is equal to
   A) IPa .                         B) IPa + maP .
   C) maG .                         D) IGa + rGP x maP .

     As the soil compactor accelerates
     forward, the front roller experiences
     general plane motion (both translation
     and rotation).

      What are the loads experienced by
      the roller shaft or bearings?

             The forces shown on the
             roller’s FBD cause the
=            accelerations shown on the
             kinetic diagram.
APPLICATIONS (continued)

        During an impact, the center of
        gravity of this crash dummy will
        decelerate with the vehicle, but also
        experience another acceleration due
        to its rotation about point A.

        How can engineers use this
        information to determine the forces
        exerted by the seat belt on a
        passenger during a crash?
             When a rigid body is subjected to external
             forces and couple-moments, it can
             undergo both translational motion as well
             as rotational motion. This combination is
             called general plane motion.

             Using an x-y inertial coordinate
             system, the equations of motions about
             the center of mass, G, may be written
                            Fx = m (aG)x
                           Fy = m (aG)y
                           MG = I G a
              Sometimes, it may be convenient to write
              the moment equation about some point P
              other than G. Then the equations of
              motion are written as follows.

                    Fx = m (aG)x
                    Fy = m (aG)y
                    MP =  (Mk )P

           In this case,  (Mk )P represents the sum of the
           moments of IGa and maG about point P.

When analyzing the rolling motion of wheels, cylinders, or disks,
it may not be known if the body rolls without slipping or if it
slides as it rolls.
                     For example, consider a disk with mass m
                     and radius r, subjected to a known force P.

                    The equations of motion will be
                     Fx = m(aG)x => P - F = maG
                     Fy = m(aG)y => N - mg = 0
                     MG = IGa      => F r = IGa

                    There are 4 unknowns (F, N, a, and aG) in
                    these three equations.

                   Hence, we have to make an assumption
                   to provide another equation. Then we
                   can solve for the unknowns.

                   The 4th equation can be obtained from
                   the slip or non-slip condition of the disk.

Case 1:
Assume no slipping and use aG = a r as the 4th equation and
DO NOT use Ff = sN. After solving, you will need to verify
that the assumption was correct by checking if Ff  sN.
 Case 2:
 Assume slipping and use Ff = kN as the 4th equation. In
 this case, aG  ar.

Problems involving the kinetics of a rigid body undergoing
general plane motion can be solved using the following procedure.

1. Establish the x-y inertial coordinate system. Draw both the
   free body diagram and kinetic diagram for the body.

2. Specify the direction and sense of the acceleration of the
   mass center, aG, and the angular acceleration a of the body.
   If necessary, compute the body’s mass moment of inertia IG.

3. If the moment equation Mp= (Mk)p is used, use the
   kinetic diagram to help visualize the moments developed by
   the components m(aG)x, m(aG)y, and IGa.

4. Apply the three equations of motion.
         PROCEDURE FOR ANALYSIS (continued)

5. Identify the unknowns. If necessary (i.e., there are four
   unknowns), make your slip-no slip assumption (typically no
   slipping, or the use of aG = a r, is assumed first).
6. Use kinematic equations as necessary to complete the
7. If a slip-no slip assumption was made, check its validity!!!

Key points to consider:
1. Be consistent in assumed directions. The direction of aG
   must be consistent with a.
2. If Ff = kN is used, Ff must oppose the motion. As a test,
   assume no friction and observe the resulting motion. This
   may help visualize the correct direction of Ff.
                    Given: A spool has a mass of 8 kg and a
                           radius of gyration (kG) of 0.35 m.
                           Cords of negligible mass are
                           wrapped around its inner hub and
                           outer rim. There is no slipping.

                    Find: The angular acceleration (a) of the

Plan: Focus on the spool. Follow the solution procedure (draw
      a FBD, etc.) and identify the unknowns.
 Solution:           EXAMPLE (continued)
                          The moment of inertia of the spool is
                          IG = m (kG)2 = 8 (0.35)2 = 0.980 kg·m 2

                          Method I
                          Equations of motion:
                          Fy = m (aG)y
                             T + 100 -78.48 = 8 aG
                          MG = IG a
                             100 (0.2) – T(0.5) = 0.98 a
There are three unknowns, T, aG, a. We need one more equation
to solve for 3 unknowns. Since the spool rolls on the cord at point
A without slipping, aG = ar. So the third equation is: aG = 0.5a
Solving these three equations, we find:
a =10.3 rad/s2, aG = 5.16 m/s2, T = 19.8 N
                 EXAMPLE (continued)

                      Method II
                      Now, instead of using a moment
                      equation about G, a moment equation
                      about A will be used. This approach will
                      eliminate the unknown cord tension (T).

 MA=  (Mk)A: 100 (0.7) - 78.48(0.5) = 0.98 a + (8 aG)(0.5)

Using the non-slipping condition again yields aG = 0.5a.

Solving these two equations, we get
a = 10.3 rad/s2, aG = 5.16 m/s2
                      CONCEPT QUIZ
1. An 80 kg spool (kG = 0.3 m) is on a             a
   rough surface and a cable exerts a 30 N      0.2m      30N
   load to the right. The friction force at A      •G
   acts to the _____ and the aG should be 0.75m

   A) right, left      B) left, right
   C) right, right D) left, left

2. For the situation above, the moment equation about G is:
   A) 0.75 (FfA) - 0.2(30) = - (80)(0.32)a
   B) -0.2(30) = - (80)(0.32)a
   C) 0.75 (FfA) - 0.2(30) = - (80)(0.32)a + 80aG
   D) None of the above.

                            Given: A 50 lb wheel has a radius
                                   of gyration kG = 0.7 ft.

                          Find: The acceleration of the
                                 mass center if M = 35 lb-ft
                                 is applied. s = 0.3, k =
Plan: Follow the problem solving procedure.

       The moment of inertia of the wheel about G is
       IG = m(kG)2 = (50/32.2)(0.7)2 = 0.761 slug·ft2
         GROUP PROBLEM SOLVING (continued)
FBD:                          Equations of motion:
                               Fx = m(aG)x
                                  FA = (50/32.2) aG
                               Fy = m(aG)y
                                  NA – 50 = 0
                               MG = IGa
                                  35 - 1.25 FA= 0.761 a

                              We have 4 unknowns: NA, FA,
                              aG and a.
Another equation is needed before solving for the unknowns.
          GROUP PROBLEM SOLVING (continued)
                               The three equations we have
                               now are:
                                  FA = (50/32.2) aG
                                   NA - 50 = 0
                                   35 – (1.25)FA = 0.761 a
                             First, assume the wheel is not
                             slipping. Thus, we can write
                                       aG = r a = 1.25 a
Now solving the four equations yields:
  NA = 50.0 lb, FA = 21.3 lb, a = 11.0 rad/s2 , aG = 13.7 ft/s2
The no-slip assumption must be checked.
Is FA = 21.3 lb  s NA= 15 lb?
No! Therefore, the wheel slips as it rolls.
                        Therefore, aG = 1.25a is not a
                        correct assumption. The slip
                        condition must be used.
                       Again, the three equations of
                       motion are:
                       FA = (50/32.2) aG
                       NA – 50 = 0
                       35 – (1.25)FA = 0.761 a
Since the wheel is slipping, the fourth equation is
        FA = k NA = 0.25 NA
Solving for the unknowns yields:
NA = 50.0 lb         FA = 0.25 NA = 12.5 lb
a = 25.5 rad/s2      aG = 8.05 ft/s2
