Consider a horizontal surface with or without friction. Ideally, will a wheel rolling without slipping roll forever in both cases?
Suppose a wheel is rolling smoothly on a horizontal plane i.e., it is rolling without slipping. Now let's take the two cases of the horizontal plane: It has friction It is frictionless In the ...
Suppose I have a box (say, length-1m, width-1m, height-0.5m) on the plane with friction. I can apply a horizontal force in on the surface of the box. If the force doesn't pass through the center of ...
Ideally speaking, will a rolling disk with no slipping come to a stop because of friction from the ground?
Consider a rotating disk on a horizontal plane with static friction. The contact point of the disk with the plane has null instantaneous velocity. Assuming the center of the disk has fixed $v_0$ ...
When we spin a coin on a table, we observe 2 things: It slows down and stops after sometime. It does not stay at just one point on the table but its point of contact with table changes with time. ...
