A pair of constant forces of magnitude F = 11.1 N is applied to opposite sides of the axle of a top, as shown in the figure. The diameter of the axle is d = 8.67 mm. The angle è, which has a value of 36.1°, describes the steepness of the top's sloping sides. The moment of inertia of the top about its spin axis is I = 0.603 kg·m2. What is the tangential acceleration at of the point labeled P, which is at a height of h = 3.23 cm above the floor?
