To calculate the work required to turn the wheel a length equal to the circumference of the axle, we need to determine the force required to overcome the gravitational force acting on the hanging object, and then use this force to calculate the work done.

First, let's find the gravitational force acting on the object: [ F_{\text{gravity}} = m \cdot g ] where: ( m = 7 ) kg (mass of the object) ( g = 9.81 , \text{m/s}^2 ) (acceleration due to gravity)

[ F_{\text{gravity}} = 7 , \text{kg} \times 9.81 , \text{m/s}^2 ] [ F_{\text{gravity}} = 68.67 , \text{N} ]

Next, we need to find the torque required to turn the wheel. Torque (( \tau )) is given by: [ \tau = F \cdot r ] where: ( F ) is the force applied ( r ) is the radius

Since the force required to turn the wheel is equal to the gravitational force acting on the object, we use ( F_{\text{gravity}} = 68.67 , \text{N} ). We'll use the radius of the axle, ( r_{\text{axle}} = 0.15 ) m.

[ \tau = 68.67 , \text{N} \times 0.15 , \text{m} ] [ \tau = 10.3 , \text{Nm} ]

Finally, we calculate the work done using the formula: [ \text{Work} = \tau \cdot \theta ] where: ( \tau ) is the torque ( \theta ) is the angle turned in radians

Since the length equal to the circumference of the axle corresponds to one full revolution, ( \theta = 2\pi ).

[ \text{Work} = 10.3 , \text{Nm} \times 2\pi ] [ \text{Work} \approx 64.6 , \text{J} ]

Therefore, it would take approximately 64.6 joules of work to turn the wheel a length equal to the circumference of the axle.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
