The 15-lb circular plate is suspended from a pin at A. If the pin is connected to a track which is given an acceleration aA = 5 ft>s2, determine the horizontal and vertical components of reaction at A and the angular acceleration of the plate. The plate is originally at rest.

ENGR 121 B Lecture Notes for 9/19/2016 Spencer Kociba Summary of Lecture: beginning to understand the vocabulary and functions in MATLAB and how we will use MATLAB and BlackBoard Learn to turn in assignments, take quizzes, etc. Goal of the course: learn to THINK like a programmer aka step by step problem solving. Problem solving techniques: ● Plan ● Restate the problem ● Divide the problem into steps or subproblems to solve ● Reduce/Simplify the problem (ex. Global scale>local scale) ● Look for similarities to other previously solved problems ○ Emotional attachment/familiarity with an idea or concept improves your memory and ability to recall information when needed ● Ex
