Chapter 6: Equilibrium of rigid bodies (II). Stability – Problem

After reading previous entry and understanding the meaning of stability, rollover and stabilising moments, you should try to solve next exercise.

A homogeneous cylinder of radius R has a cylindrical hole of diameter R as shows in Figure. Cylinder can roll down the inclined plane without slipping. Determine the maximum angle θ of the inclined plane because the cylinder be in equilibrium. Obtain also the angle between the horizontal and the diameter AB in this situation.

NOTE: you can send your solution by tutorial tool in UACloud for including it in the continuous evaluation.
