A 24 inch string is wrapped around the 1/8 inch radius axis of a yo yo. Starting from rest the yo yo descends with a constant angular acceleration of 4 rad/second squared. How long will it take the string to completely unwind?

  • Physics -

    Basic equation required:
    Arc = rθ
    S=ut+(1/2)at²

    4 rad/s²
    ≡ 4r inch/s²
    =(1/2) inc/s²

    initial velocity, u =0
    a = 0.5 in/s²
    24 inches = 0*t + (1/2)at²
    t=sqrt(2*24/0.5)
    =sqrt(96)
    =9.8 s
