Question

The 6-lb steel cylinder A of radius r and the 10-lb wooden cart B are at rest in the position shown when the cylinder is given a slightnudge, causing it to roll without sliding along the top surface of the cart. Neglecting friction between the cart and the ground, determine the velocity of the cart as the cylinder passes through the lowest point of the surface at C.
