Use a coordinate system with the x axis in the equatorial plane and passing through the prime meridian; let the z axis be on the polar axis, positive toward the north pole, as shown in the sketch. TA Time α g= 8h , T A − T B2 2 R where h is the height of line B above line A. 17 Rolling drum A drum of radius R rolls down a slope without slipping. Its axis has acceleration a parallel to the slope. What is the drum’s angular acceleration α? 18 Elevator and falling marble* At t = 0, an elevator departs from the ground with uniform speed.

5 we demonstrated how to describe velocity and acceleration by vectors. In particular, we showed how to diﬀerentiate the vector r to obtain a new vector v = dr/dt. We will want to diﬀerentiate other vectors with respect to time on occasion, so it is worthwhile generalizing our discussion. 10 MORE ABOUT THE TIME DERIVATIVE OF A VECTOR 23 Consider a vector A(t) that changes with time. The change in A(t) during the interval from t to t + Δt is A(t + Δt ) ΔA ΔA = A(t + Δt) − A(t). 6, we define the time derivative of A by A + ΔA A(t + Δt) − A(t) dA = lim .
