Rigid Body Rotation Question 2


Question :
A carpet of mass M made of inextensible material is rolled along its length in the form of a cylinder of radius R and is kept on a rough floor. The carpet starts unrolling without sliding on the floor when a negligible small push is given to it. Calculate the horizontal velocity of the axis of the cylinder part of the carpet when its radius is reduced to R/2.
