Problem 11.6: A rolling wheel is attached via a string to a hanging mass
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A wheel rolls without slipping while being pulled by a massless string wrapped around its circumference. The string is also attached to a 0.11-kg hanging mass via a massless pulley as shown (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). If the wheel closely resembles a uniform disk, what is the mass of the wheel? Hint: use energy. Restart.
