A large grinding wheel in the shape of a solid cylinder of radius 0.330 m is free to rotate on a frictionless, vertical axle. A constant tangential force of 260 N applied to its edge causes the wheel to have an angular acceleration of 0.795 rad/s2. (a) What is the moment of ...

Are the two strings attached to the same point on the ceiling? If so, consider the net torque on either ball about the ceiling attach point. it must be zero. The gravity (weight) torque balances the Coulomb-force torque. M*g*Lsin22 = k q^2*Lcos22/(2Lsin22)^2 L can be solved ...

Ok, so after struggling through the above explanation I decided to repost a (imho) better worded, generalized explanation: Firstly let me define my variables: Fb=force of BOTH back wheels on the ground=2F(1backwheel) Ff=force of BOTH front wheels on the ground=2F(1frontwheel) ...

No, it isn't, but thanks for showing your work. Actually there are only two torques applied. I don't see why you are applying a factor of 1/2 to each radius Torque 1 is +1.2 x 6.0 = +7.2 N-m Torque 2 is -3.0 x 5.2 sin 30 = -7.8 N-m The net torque is -0.6 N-m
