```        a man pushes a cylinder of mass m1 with the help of a plank of mass m2 as shown. There is no slipping at any contact. The horizontal component of the force applied by the man is F. find:
(a) the accelerations of the plank and the centre of mass of the cylinder, and
(b) magnitudes and directions of frictional forces at contact points.

```										Dear Aditya Nijampurkar,
Ans:
Let us consider the following
a1=Acc of the cylinder towards right
a2=Acc of the plank towards right
β= clockwise angular Acc of the cylinder
f1= The force of friction at the point of contact of the bodies
f2=The force of friction at the bottommost surface
The eq of motions of the Plank and the cylinder are,
F - f1=m2 a2..........................(1)
(f1+f2)r=Iβ.............................(2)
f1 - f2=m1 a1.............................(3)
Now the conditions of non sleepping are
βr+a1 = a2........................(4)
βr=a2...............................(5)
Solving we get
a2=8F/(3m1+8m2)
a1=4F/(3m1+8m2)
f1=3m1 F/(3m1+8m2)
f2= - m1 F/(3m1+8m2)
The negative sign indicates that friction between the ground and the cylinder  acts in the forward direction.

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can. If you find any question Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.
All the best  Aditya Nijampurkar !!!
