A thin, light string is wrapped around the rim of a 4.00kg solid uniform disk that is 30.0cm in diameter. A person pulls on the string with a constant force of 100N tangent to the disk. Find the linear acceleration of its center of mass. If the disk is replaced by a hollow thin-walled cylinder of the same mass and diameter, what will be the angular acceleration of the disk about its center of mass and what will be the linear acceleration of its center of mass?
