So is this point fixed, or is it the point that is always in contact with the surface? If it's the latter, it's trivial. So I'm guessing you actually want to first?

- AravindG

hmm

- AravindG

i hav a fig hope it helps

|dw:1327765593766:dw|here dont bother about omega as as it is zero (v=rw) so just consider the velocity and plot down the points(for that u have to know how it moves along the axis at a given time ) considering uniform velocity v at time t in a straight line(x-axis) v/t will give the x-co-ordinate
y co-rdinate is zero

is that the answr?

- AravindG

hw is omega equal to 0??

\[\overrightarrow{OP}=\overrightarrow{OA}+\overrightarrow{AB}+\overrightarrow{BP}=+<0,r>+<-r\sin\theta,-r\cos\theta>\]\[\overrightarrow{OP}=\]subbing in omega t for the angle\[\overrightarrow{OP}=\]if we are talking about the situation I am imagining...

- JamesJ

Nicely done TT

- TuringTest

Thanks, hats of to OCW on that :D

- AravindG

heyy TT why is your and salini's answr different?

- TuringTest

I don't know what situation salini is imagining, but it is different than mine.
I think he is imagining just looking at whatever point is on the bottom, not letting it rotate.

- AravindG

so which is the right method?

- TuringTest

if you are talking about this

then mine is right
depends on what your question means, are we following point P or always looking at the bottom

- anonymous

i thought that the point on the bottom lies on the axis of rotation of the disc then omega=v/r where r is 0

- AravindG

look at my fig

- TuringTest

Well which is it arvind? are we always looking at the bottom point or are we following point P which starts at the bottom?

- AravindG

wel i think we are looking at co ordinates of bottom point

- AravindG

but in pure rollindg dont we assume that the particles rotate about the bottom point???

- TuringTest

then why does it ask for the y-coordinates if they don't change?

- AravindG

hmmm

- anonymous

oh i get it......when u said ocw helped u solve this was it walter lewin professors video?

- AravindG

guys i will be back in 10 min

- TuringTest

actually I learned about cycloids from the multivariable calculus section

- anonymous

oh thank u for rresponding

- AravindG

so wat is the answer is it salini's or turings??

- TuringTest

ohj here it is

@arvind you have to figure out what your question is asking

- JamesJ

^^ exactly. The fact that you (Aravind) aren't clear on what the question is makes me very suspicious that you're actually paying attention to the method in the solutions. That is why I recommend again that you only post one or at the most two questions at a time.
With those one or two questions, really, truly, thoroughly, completely understand the answers, then move onto the next problem.
This is example number #9 or #10 in my book where it's clear to me you're not really paying attention to the answers we give. I'm not going to help you again, unless I see you try and really work out a problem with us, instead of putting things out there and grabbing in a half-*ssed way the answers and questions we propose back to you.
