The crane shown in the drawing is lifting a 182-kg crate upward with an acceleration of \(\displaystyle{1.5}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\). The cable from the crate passes over a solid cylindrical pulley at the top of the boom. The pulley has a mass of 130 kg. The cable is then wound ontoa hollow cylindrical drum that is mounted on the deck of the crane.The mass of the drum is 150 kg, and its radius is 0.76 m. The engine applies a counter clockwise torque to the drum in order towind up the cable. What is the magnitude of this torque? Ignore the mass of the cable.

Let us represent
\(\displaystyle{T}_{{1}}\) as magnitude of tension in thecord between the drum and the pulley
the net torque is calculated accordingto the equation
so the net torque exerted on the drum will be
Where \(\displaystyle{I}_{{1}}\) is the moment of inertia of the drum
\(\displaystyle\alpha_{{1}}\) is the angular acceleration of the drum
if we take that the cable does not slip then we can write
in the above equation
T is the counter clockwise torque providedby the motor and a is the acceleration of the cord as from the given we can see that
in the next step we take \(\displaystyle{T}_{{2}}\) as magnitude of tension in the cordbetween the crate and the pulley and \(\displaystyle{I}_{{2}}\) as the moment of inertia of the pulley next we apply newtons second law of motion to thepulley then we get
apply newtons second law oftranslational motion to the crate then we get
now solving for \(\displaystyle{T}_{{1}}\) from equation(1) and substituting the result in (2) then solving (2) for \(\displaystyle{T}_{{2}}\) and substituting the result in (3) we get the following value of the torque as
\((0.76 m)\left(\frac{1.5 m}{s_2}\right) [182 kg + \left(\frac{1}{2}\right) (130 kg) + (150 kg)] + (150 kg)\left(9.80\frac{m}{s_2}\right)]\)
= ....... N.m

The equation F=−vex(dm/dt) for the thrust on a rocket, can also be applied to an airplane propeller. In fact, there are two contributions to the thrust: one positive and one negative. The positive contribution comes from air pushed backward, away from the propeller (so dm/dt<0), at a speed vex relative to the propeller. The negative contribution comes from this same quantity of air flowing into the front of the propeller (so dm/dt>0) at speed v, equal to the speed of the airplane through the air.
For a Cessna 182 (a single-engine airplane) flying at 130 km/h, 150 kg of air flows through the propeller each second and the propeller develops a net thrust of 1300 N. Determine the speed increase (in km/h) that the propeller imparts to the air.
