I am just a man who has an insatiable desire for knowledge.

"For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]."~ Philippians 4:8

Oh, yes...The pulley would definitely have more rotational inertia, and that would diminish the amount of force transmitted, right?

What is effective mass, and what is c.g.?

Oh, so basically your process involves reconstituting the door by squishing the height, and uniformly concentrating the mass over the width?

comment Calculating Moment Of Inertia
So, there isn't really any intuitive way of seeing that the height isn't required?

Why is the height not needed, though?

Thank you very much! I completely forgot about the rotational kinematic equations, until you had refreshed my mind.

@leongz Well, how would I find the time interval during which the centrifuge slows down?

Is this outwards force due to rotation perhaps the centrifugal force?
