Static equilibrium for a rope on a spool. Same as A+55+5.

Static Equilibrium of a Spool. Tension = T = mg. If T is not too large, the spool will roll without slipping. It will reach equilibrium at angle given by: sin(theta)= R1 / R2. If T is increased, the spool will start to slip, but the angle will stay the same. Derivation: Equilibrium: F = T sin(theta) Rotation: F R1 = T R1 Divide one equation by the other: 1/ R2 = sin(theta) / R1. Table Stand R1= 94mm R2= 203mm
