Problem 3DQ

Car tires are sometimes “balanced” on a machine that pivots the tire and wheel about the center. Weights are placed around the wheel rim until it does not tip from the horizontal plane. Discuss this procedure in terms of the center of gravity.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 3DQ Step 1 of 1: The center of gravity can be displaced from the axis of the wheel so the weight of the wheel can result in an unwanted torque. To balance this out, one must place additional weights in order to reposition the center of gravity of this system to coincide with the axis of the wheel.

Step 2 of 1
