Learning Goal: To understand the meaning of the variables that appear in the equationsforrotational kinematics with constant angular acceleration.
Rotationalmotion with a constant nonzero acceleration is not uncommon in the world around us. For instance, many machines have spinning parts. When the machine is turned on or o
A student is performing measurements with a hockey puck on a large merry-go-round with a frictionless, horizontal, flat surface end has a constant angular velocity of W(bar) and rotates counter clockwise as seen from above.
Given: the radius of the merry-go-round is R= 1m, W(bar)=1 radian/sec.
Initial position is: x=-.5R
Mass m is attached to a post with radius R by a string. Initially, the mass is a distance r from the center of the post and is moving tangentially with a speed Vo. In case (a) the string passes through a hole in the center of the post at the top. The string is gradually shortened by drawing it through the hole. Case (b) the spri
A helicopter has 3 blades, each of them are 5.20m long and has a mass of 220kg.(each blade has a mass of 220kg, not the sum of the 3) The rotor is rotating at 385 rev/min.
a)What is the rotational inertia of the rotor assembly about the axis of rotation? (Each blade can be considered to be a thin rod rotated about one
A 62.99 kg woman stands at the rim of a horizontal turntable having a moment of inertia of 495 kg·m^2 and a radius of 2.00 m. The turntable is initially at rest and is free to rotate about a frictionless, vertical axle through its center. The woman then starts walking around the rim clockwise (as viewed from above the system) a
At the local swimming hole, a favorite trick is to run horizontally off a cliff that is 8.9 m above the water. One diver runs off the edge of the cliff, tucks into a "ball," and rotates on the way down with an average angular speed of 1.2 rev/s. Ignore air resistance and determine the number of revolutions she makes while on the
