Angular momentum of a ball constrained to move on a table

A particle of mass m is attached to the end of a light string of length l. The other end of the string is passed through a small hole and is slowly pulled through it. Gravity is negligible. The particle is originally spinning the round the hole with angular velocity w. Find the angular velocity when the string length has been reduced to 1/2 l. Find also the tension in the string when its length is r, and verify that the increase in kinetic energy is equal to the work done by the force pulling the string through the hole.

Following is the text part of the solution. Please see the attached file for complete solution. Equations, diagrams, graphs and special characters will not appear correctly here. Thank you for using Brainmass.

Let the length of the string at any time t be r. Let the tension be T(r). Let ...

Solution Summary

The ball in this problem is constrained to move on the surface of a table. Typically, this type of problem requires one to use Lagrangian mechanics. However, here I have used the conservation of angular momentum. I have provided all the necessary steps in arriving at the solution.

Need FBD for each case.
The 0.2 kg ball ( ball is sliding not rotating) and the supporting cord are revolving about the vertical axis on the fixed smooth conical surface with an angular velocity of W = 4 radians/sec. The green ball is held in position b = .3 m by the tension T in the yellow cord.

In the figure (please see the attachment), a 0.420 kg ball is shot directly upward at initial speed 37.5 m/s. What is its angularmomentum about P, 2.20 m horizontally from the launch point, when the ball is at the following heights?
i) at max height, ii) when it is halfway to the ground.
Also find the torque on the ball

A uniform 25 kg disc with a diameter of 9 meters is mounted on a frictionless axle at its center. The disc is rotating at 2.2rad/s, up. A person (85kg) is initially at its center. The person then walks out to the edge of the disc, facing forward, and catches a 2.5kg ball tossed in his face at 18m/s with respect to the ground.

The 6lb slender rod AB is originally shown at rest, suspended in the vertical position. A 1lb ball is thrown at the rod with the velocity v= 50ft/s and strikes the rod at C. Determine the angular velocity of the rod just after the impact. Take e = 0.7 and d= 2ft. (See attachment for diagram)

A 1.5 kg particle moves in the xy plane with velocity = (4.2i - 3.6j)m/s. What is the angularmomentum of the particle when its position vector is r = 1.5i + 2.2j m

If a rigid homogeneous rectangular crate of mass m and height h slides on its base of w, while traveling a velocity v, it stikes a low, immovable curb. What is the angular velocity of the crate immediately after the impact, in terms of m,w,h,v; and under what condition (in m,w,h,v) will the crate fall over on its side?

By striking a pool ball below its mid-line, you can cause it to translate to the right while rotating counterclockwise (slipping). Assume a coefficient of friction equal ot 0.65, a diameter of 7 cm, a mass of 0.11 kg, a velocity of 5 m/sec and a spinn of 30 rad/sec. How far will the ball travel before it translations to pure rol

A turntable has rotational inertia 0.021 kg-m^2 and is rotating at 0.29 rad/s about a friction-less vertical axis. A wad of clay is tossed onto the turntable and sticks 15cm from the rotation axis. The clay hits with horizontal velocity component 1.3 m/s, at right angles to the turntable's radius, and in a direction that opposes
