Physics

A stationary bicycle is raised off the ground, and its front wheel (m = 1.70 kg) is rotating at an angular velocity of 21.9 rad/s (see the figure). The front brake is then applied for 1.35 s, and the wheel slows down to 4.47 rad/s. Assume that all the mass of the wheel is concentrated in the rim, the radius of which is 0.330 m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between each brake pad and the rim is μk = 0.501. What is the magnitude of the normal force that each brake pad applies to the rim?

    If you lift the front wheel of a poorly maintained bicycle off the ground and then start it spinning at 0.72 {\rm rev}/{\rm s}, friction in the bearings causes the wheel to stop in just 12 {\rm s}.
