v CM = ( 3.71 m / s 2 ) 25.0 m = 9.63 m / s .

Significance

This is a fairly accurate result considering that Mars has very little atmosphere, and the loss of energy due to air resistance would be minimal. The result also assumes that the terrain is smooth, such that the wheel wouldn’t encounter rocks and bumps along the way.

Also, in this example, the kinetic energy, or energy of motion, is equally shared between linear and rotational motion. If we look at the moments of inertia in [link] , we see that the hollow cylinder has the largest moment of inertia for a given radius and mass. If the wheels of the rover were solid and approximated by solid cylinders, for example, there would be more kinetic energy in linear motion than in rotational motion. This would give the wheel a larger linear velocity than the hollow cylinder approximation. Thus, the solid cylinder would reach the bottom of the basin faster than the hollow cylinder.

Summary

  • In rolling motion without slipping, a static friction force is present between the rolling object and the surface. The relations v CM = R ω , a CM = R α , and d CM = R θ all apply, such that the linear velocity, acceleration, and distance of the center of mass are the angular variables multiplied by the radius of the object.
  • In rolling motion with slipping, a kinetic friction force arises between the rolling object and the surface. In this case, v CM R ω , a CM R α , and d CM R θ .
  • Energy conservation can be used to analyze rolling motion. Energy is conserved in rolling motion without slipping. Energy is not conserved in rolling motion with slipping due to the heat generated by kinetic friction.

A wheel is released from the top on an incline. Is the wheel most likely to slip if the incline is steep or gently sloped?

The wheel is more likely to slip on a steep incline since the coefficient of static friction must increase with the angle to keep rolling motion without slipping.

A hollow sphere and a hollow cylinder of the same radius and mass roll up an incline without slipping and have the same initial center of mass velocity. Which object reaches a greater height before stopping?

The cylinder reaches a greater height. By [link] , its acceleration in the direction down the incline would be less.

A solid cylinder rolls up an incline at an angle of 20 ° . If it starts at the bottom with a speed of 10 m/s, how far up the incline does it travel?

Mechanical energy at the bottom equals mechanical energy at the top;
1 2 m v 0 2 + 1 2 ( 1 2 m r 2 ) ( v 0 r ) 2 = m g h h = 1 g ( 1 2 + 1 4 ) v 0 2 ,
h = 7.7 m, so the distance up the incline is 22.5 m .

A solid cylindrical wheel of mass M and radius R is pulled by a force F applied to the center of the wheel at 37 ° to the horizontal (see the following figure). If the wheel is to roll without slipping, what is the maximum value of | F | ? The coefficients of static and kinetic friction are μ S = 0.40 and μ k = 0.30 .

The forces on a wheel, radius R, on a horizontal surface are shown. The wheel is centered on an x y coordinate system that has positive x to the right and positive y up. Force F acts on the center of the wheel at an angle of 37 degrees above the positive x direction. Force M g acts on the center of the wheel and points down. Force N points up and acts at the contact point where the wheel touches the surface. Force f sub s points to the left and acts at the contact point where the wheel touches the surface.

A hollow cylinder is given a velocity of 5.0 m/s and rolls up an incline to a height of 1.0 m. If a hollow sphere of the same mass and radius is given the same initial velocity, how high does it roll up the incline?

Use energy conservation
1 2 m v 0 2 + 1 2 I Cyl ω 0 2 = m g h Cyl ,
1 2 m v 0 2 + 1 2 I Sph ω 0 2 = m g h Sph .
Subtracting the two equations, eliminating the initial translational energy, we have
1 2 I Cyl ω 0 2 1 2 I Sph ω 0 2 = m g ( h Cyl h Sph ) ,
1 2 m r 2 ( v 0 r ) 2 1 2 2 3 m r 2 ( v 0 r ) 2 = m g ( h Cyl h Sph ) ,
1 2 v 0 2 1 2 2 3 v 0 2 = g ( h Cyl h Sph ) ,
h Cyl h Sph = 1 g ( 1 2 1 3 ) v 0 2 = 1 9.8 m / s 2 ( 1 6 ) ( 5.0 m / s) 2 = 0.43 m .
Thus, the hollow sphere, with the smaller moment of inertia, rolls up to a lower height of 1.0 0.43 = 0.57 m .
