A and B are two separate clutch plates. Plate A has a mass of 36 kg, a
radius of gyration of 0.12 m and rotates at 660 rev min-1. Plate B has a
mass of 45 kg, a radius of gyration of 0.16 m and is stationary.
When the clutch plates are engaged, slipping ceases after 0.4 seconds and
the two plates then rotate with a common angular velocity. Calculate:
(a) the common angular velocity of the plates after engagement
(b) the loss of kinetic energy during the engagement© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 3:06 am ad1c9bdddf
Please see the attached.
Moment of Inertia of a body about given axis is given by I = MK2 where M is the mass and K is the radius of gyration. Thus
Moment of inertia of plate A is given by
And that of plate B will be
Angular velocity of a clutch plate is calculated after engaged with a stationary plate.
