The 950-g gear A is constrained to roll on the fixed gear B, but is free to rotate about axle AD. Axle AD, of length 400 mm and negligible mass, is connected by a clevis to the vertical shaft DE which rotates as shown with a constant angular velocity ω1. Assuming that gear A can be approximated by a thin disk of radius 80 mm, determine the largest allowable value of ω1 if gear A is not to lose contact with gear B.
