Advanced dynamics of a spinning disk

The disk spins about its own axis at 1,200 rev/min as the system rotates about the vertical axis at 20 rev/min. Determine the angular velocity and angular acceleration of the disk if beta is constant at 30 degrees.

See attached file for full problem description.


Solution Summary

The solution shows how to calculate the angular velocity and acceleration of a spinning and rotating disk.
