A mass ‘m’ is supported by a massless string wound around a uniform hollow cylinder of mass m and radius R. If the string does not slip on the cylinder, with what acceleration will the mass fall on release?
2g/3
g/2
5g/6
g
B.
g/2
For the mass m,
mg-T = ma
As we know, a = Rα ... (i)
So, mg-T = mRα
Torque about centre of pully
T x R = mR^{2}α ...... (ii)
From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get
a = g/2
Hence, the acceleration of the mass of a body fall is g/2.
