The spool has a mass of 100 kg and a radius of gyration of kG = 200mm   about its center of mass . If a vertical force of P = 200 N is applied to the cable, determine the acceleration of and the angular acceleration of the spool. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the rail and the spool  µs = 0.3are and µK  =0.25, respectively.
