Question details

21. A block B of mass m is attached to a cord wrapped around a cylinder A of mass M m/3 and of radius R. Block B hangs freely from the cylinder and the horizontal surface. The cylinder rolls without slipping on the surface. Immediately after the system has been released from rest, determine the following: a) The components of acceleration of the mass center of the cylinder A. b) The angular acceleration of the cylinder A. c) The components of acceleration of the block B The mass moment of inertia of a cylinder relative to an axis passing through its center of mass is I mr2/2.
