Rolling Motion
Derive an equation for the moment of inertia using
translational and rotational
dynamics
and
kinematics
.
Draw
an
extended FBD
for
the hoop.
Include coord system
and label
all quantities
Use your FBDs to set up your dynamics
equations. Don’t solve here:

In the last equation, indicate with subscripts whether you are considering the torques (and
moment of inertia) about the center of mass or the
point of contact between the hoop and the
track.
List the acceleration constraint (how are

Rolling Motion
Use kinematics to express the acceleration a
cm
in terms of quantities you measured (i.e. in terms
of time t, track length d, and angle of incl
ine

Solve your equations for the moment of inertia about the center of mass. Call this quantity I
M2
.
Note: you should only have measured qu
antities on the right hand side.
Final answer: I

Derive an equation for the moment of inertia using
conservation of energy and
kinematics
.
Use kinematics to find the final speed v of the hoop:
Set up the equation for conservation of energy:
From the
above equation, eliminate the angular velocity (express it in terms of v). Then solve
the equation for the moment of inertia. Make sure the right hand side has only measured
quantities in it:
