Discussion :: Planar Kinematics of a Rigid Body (PKRB) - General Questions (Q.No.23)


If the rim of the wheel and its hub maintain contact with the three stationary tracks as the wheel rolls, it is neccessary that slipping occurs at the hub A if no slipping occurs at B. Under these conditions, what is the speed at A if the wheel has an angular velocity ?

[A]. vA = (r2-r1)
[B]. vA = r1
[C]. vA = (r2-r1)
[D]. vA = r1

Answer: Option A
