    Dynamics Problem - Backspin (Friction, Velocity)

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    A 1.2ft diameter ball is thrown onto a rough surface, such that it has a velocity of 6ft/s and a backspin angular velocity of w. If it is to stop backspinning at the same instant as the velocity is 0, the backspin w in rad/s is what? HINT: The answer is independent of the mass and coefficient of friction.
    a. 17.8
    b. 22.0
    c. 25.0
    d. 28.1
