## EXERCISE 73, Page 172

1. A pulley driving a belt has a diameter of 360 mm and is turning at 2700/ revolutions per

minute. Find the angular velocity of the pulley and the linear velocity of the belt assuming that

no slip occurs.

Angular velocity = 2n, where n is the speed of revolution in revolutions per second, i.e.
2700
n= revolutions per second.
60
2700
Thus, angular velocity, = 2 = 90 rad/s

The linear velocity of a point on the rim, v = r, where r is the radius of the wheel, i.e.

360
r= = 180 mm = 0.18 m

## Thus, linear velocity, v = r = 90 0.18 = 16.2 m/s

2. A bicycle is travelling at 36 km/h and the diameter of the wheels of the bicycle is 500 mm.

Determine the angular velocity of the wheels of the bicycle and the linear velocity of a point on

## the rim of one of the wheels.

36 1000
Linear velocity, v = 36 km/h = m/s = 10 m/s
3600
(Note that changing from km/h to m/s involves dividing by 3.6)

Radius of wheel, r = = 250 mm = 0.25 m

Since, v = r, then angular velocity, = = = 40 rad/s

1. A flywheel rotating with an angular velocity of 200 rad/s is uniformly accelerated at a rate of

5 rad/s 2 for 15 s. Find the final angular velocity of the flywheel both in rad/s and revolutions per

minute.

## = 200 + (5)(15) = 200 + 75 = 275 rad/s

60 8250
In revolutions per minute, 275 rad/s = 275 = rev/min or 2626 rev/min

2. A disc accelerates uniformly from 300 revolutions per minute to 600 revolutions per minute in

25 s. Determine its angular acceleration and the linear acceleration of a point on the rim of the

## disc, if the radius of the disc is 250 mm.

Initial angular velocity, 1 = 300 =10 rad/s

1. A grinding wheel makes 300 revolutions when slowing down uniformly from 1000 rad/s to

## 400 rad/s. Find the time for this reduction in speed.

Angle turned through, = 1 t hence 300 2 = t

## i.e. angular retardation is 222.8 rad/s 2

3. A disc accelerates uniformly from 300 revolutions per minute to 600 revolutions per minute in

25 s. Calculate the number of revolutions the disc makes during this accelerating period.

## Angle turned through,

4. A pulley is accelerated uniformly from rest at a rate of 8 rad/s 2 . After 20 s the acceleration stops

and the pulley runs at constant speed for 2 min, and then the pulley comes uniformly to rest after

a further 40 s. Calculate: (a) the angular velocity after the period of acceleration,

EXERCISE 76, Page 177

1. A car is moving along a straight horizontal road at 79.2 km/h and rain is falling vertically
downwards at 26.4 km/h. Find the velocity of the rain relative to the driver of the car.

The space diagram is shown in diagram (a). The velocity diagram is shown in diagram (b) and the

## velocity of the rain relative to the driver is given by vector rc where rc = re + ec

79.2
rc = ( 79.2 2
+ 26.42 ) = 83.5 km/h tan 1
and = = 71.6
26.4

(a) (b)

i.e. the velocity of the rain relative to the driver is 83.5 km/h at 71.6 to the vertical.

2. Calculate the time needed to swim across a river 142 m wide when the swimmer can swim at
2 km/h in still water and the river is flowing at 1 km/h. At what angle to the bank should the
swimmer swim?

The swimmer swims at 2 km/h relative to the water, and as he swims the movement of the water

carries him downstream. He must therefore aim against the flow of the water at an angle shown

in the triangle of velocities shown below where v is the swimmers true speed.

1000
v= 22 12 =3 km/h = 3 m/min = 28.87 m/min

142
Hence, if the width of the river is 142 m, the swimmer will take = 4.919 minutes
28.87
= 4 min 55 s

In the above diagram, sin = from which, = 30
2
Hence, the swimmer needs to swim at an angle of 60 to the bank (shown as angle in the
diagram.

## 3. A ship is heading in a direction N 60 E at a speed which in still water would be 20 km/h. It is

carried off course by a current of 8 km/h in a direction of E 50 S. Calculate the ships actual
speed and direction.

In the triangle of velocities shown below (triangle 0AB), 0A represents the velocity of the ship in

still water, AB represents the velocity of the water relative to the earth, and 0B is the velocity of the

## Total vertical component of v = 20 sin 30 + 8 sin 310 = 3.87

Hence, v= ( 22.46 2
+ 3.87 2 ) = 22.79 km/h,

3.87
and tan 1
= = 9.78
22.46

## Hence, the ships actual speed is 22.79 km/h in a direction E 9.78 N
