This lesson covers the application of Euler's laws of motion, specifically in the context of rotational motion. The lesson begins with a problem involving a cylinder rolling down an inextensible cable. The weight of the cylinder and the tension in the cable are given, and the task is to find the acceleration of the mass center of the cylinder and the tension in the cable. The lesson then proceeds to explain how to draw free body diagrams and apply the laws of kinematics and kinetics to solve the problem. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the importance of taking moments about the center of mass when applying Euler's second law.
