The 6 -lb cylinder $B$ and the 4 -lb wedge $A$ are held at rest in the position shown by cord $C .$ Assuming that the cylinder rolls without sliding on the wedge and neglecting friction between the wedge and the ground, determine, immediately after cord $C$ has been cut, $(a)$ the acceleration of the wedge, $(b)$ the angular acceleration of the cylinder.

In physics, kinematics is the description of the motion of objects and systems in the frame of reference defined by the observer. An observer has to be specified, otherwise the term is meaningless.

In mathematics, a position is a point in space. The concept is abstracted from physical space, in which a position is a location given by the coordinates of a point. In physics, the term is used to describe a family of quantities which describe the configuration of a physical system in a given state. The term is also used to describe the set of possible configurations of a system.
