The figure shows an arrangement in which four disks are suspended by cords. The longer, top cord loops over a frictionless pulley and pulls with a force of magnitude 82.6 N on the wall to which it is attached. The tensions in the shorter cords are T1 = 61.4 N, T2 = 47.2 N, and...

how do disc grinders work? My disk grinder has a series AC motor attached to a rubber disk upon which the grinding sheet is attached. The grinding sheet I use is carbide glued to paper. The carbide coated sheet rotates against the metal, usually a weld I am smoothing, and the ...

A uniform disk with mass m = 8.54 kg and radius R = 1.35 m lies in the x-y plane and centered at the origin. Three forces act in the +y-direction on the disk: 1) a force 333 N at the edge of the disk on the +x-axis, 2) a force 333 N at the edge of the disk on the –y-axis, and ...

A CD has a diameter of 12.0 cm and a mass of 15.8 g. The motor in a CD player causes the disk, initially at rest, to spin. When in operation, the CD spins in such a way that the laser scans the tracks at a constant tangential velocity of 1.20 m/s. The first track of the CD is ...
