If do is the angular displacement of the roller corresponding to displacements, dO of the disk, and ds of the point of application of P, a, and C constants, then d4) = x _ ¢Pds = C.Pds, and therefore 4) = C f 82 Pds; that is, the angular displacement of the roller measures the work done during the displacement from s 1 to s 2 .
