Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your system is conservative since the cylinder is not slipping. Use energy method, choosing a common parameter such as the position of the centre of the cylinder x and its derivative v. Kinetic Energy = ....... + ......... = f(v) Elastic potential Energy = ......... + .......... = g(x) Sum is constant, so add them up and take timederivative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@vincent in above problem if we have frictional force in addition then it will be non conservative force system then how are we gonna solve this problem ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can use the same method, slighly adapted for your new situation. The derivative of total energy is not 0, but is equal to the (negative) power of the friction force.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooh I see so you are still taking sum of total forces (conservative+ non cons) eqauls to zero am I right? @VincentLyon.Fr
