Discussion :: Planar Kinematics of a Rigid Body (PKRB) - General Questions (Q.No.22)


The automobile with wheels 2.5 ft in diameter is traveling in a straight path at a rate of 60 ft/s. If no slipping occurs, determine the angular velocity of one of the rear wheels and the velocity of the fastest moving point on the wheel.

[A]. = 48 rad/s, vmax = 84.9 ft/s
[B]. = 24 rad/s, vmax = 84.9 ft/s
[C]. = 48 rad/s, vmax = 120.0 ft/s
[D]. = 24 rad/s, vmax = 120.0 ft/s

Answer: Option C

I know that to find the vmax acceleration must be 0. Which equation should be used?
