STEM Lessons for College Students

9.63 . A vacuum cleaner belt is looped over a shaft of radius 0.45 cm and a wheel of radius 1.80 cm. The arrangement of the belt shaft and wheel is similar to that of the chain and sprockets in Fig. Q9.4. The motor turns the shaft at 60.0 rev>s and the moving belt turns the wheel which in turn is connected by another shaft to the roller that beats the dirt out of the rug being vacuumed. Assume that the belt doesn’t slip on either the shaft or the wheel. (a) What is the speed of a point on the belt? (b) What is the angular velocity of the wheel in rad>s?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
