The Insect's Ride HomeClassical Mechanics Level 4
An Insect is standing still on top of a Garden Roller (a Solid Cylinder) of Radius R = 1m. But unfortunately, someone pushed the Roller such that it is rolling without Slipping. Find the distance traveled (in meters) by the Insect in one Complete Rotation of the Roller (in the Ground Frame of Reference).
Note: Assume that the Insect is strong enough to hold on to its position at all times.
