The wheel in the simplified engine of Figure P13.23 has radius A = 0.250 m and rotates with angular frequency ω = 12.0 rad/s. At t = 0, the piston is located at x = A. Calculate the piston’s (a) position, (b) velocity, and (c) acceleration at t = 1.15 s.


Figure P13.23


To determine
The position of the piston.


Given info: The radius of the wheel A=0.250m . The wheel rotates with angular frequency ω=12.0rads-1 . At t=0 , the piston is located at x=A . t=1.15s .


Since the piston is connected to the rotating wheel, its position is given by,



x is the position of the piston

A is the radius of the reference circle

ω is the angular speed

t is the time taken

Substituting ω=12.0rads-1 , A=0


To determine
The velocity of the piston.


To determine
The acceleration of the piston.
