Both turn through the same angle. Because r is greater for the point on the rim, it has the greater speed. Both have the same angular velocity. Both have zero tangential acceleration. Both have zero angular acceleration. Because r is greater for the point on the rim, it has the greater centripetal acceleration. 2 • ( a ) False. Angular velocity has the dimensions ⎥ ⎦ ⎤ ⎢ ⎣ ⎡ T 1 whereas linear velocity has dimensions ⎥ ⎦ ⎤ ⎢ ⎣ ⎡ T L . ( b ) True. The angular velocity of all points on the wheel is d θ / dt. ( c ) True. The angular acceleration of all points on the wheel is d ω / dt. 3 •• Picture the Problem The constant-acceleration equation that relates the given variables is θ α ω ω ∆ + = 2 2 2 . We can set up a proportion to determine the number of revolutions required to double ω and then subtract to find the number of additional revolutions to accelerate the disk to an angular speed of 2 ω . Using a constant-acceleration equation, relate the initial and final angular velocities to the angular acceleration: θ α ω ω ∆ + = 2 2 2 or, because 2 ω = 0, θ α ω ∆ = 2 2 Let ∆ θ 10 represent the number of revolutions required to reach an angular velocity ω : 10 2 2 θ α ω ∆ = (1) Let ∆ θ 2 ω represent the number of revolutions required to reach an angular velocity ω : ( ) ω θ α ω 2 2 2 2 ∆ = (2) Divide equation (2) by equation (1) and solve for ∆ θ 2 ω : ( ) 10 10 2 2 2 4 2 θ θ ω ω θ ω ∆ = ∆ = ∆ Chapter 9 616 The number of additional revolutions is: ( ) rev 30 rev 10 3 3 4 10 10 10 = = ∆ = ∆ − ∆ θ θ θ and correct. is ) ( c *4 • Determine the Concept Torque has the dimension ⎥ ⎦ ⎤ ⎢ ⎣ ⎡ 2 2 T ML .

Because both ( b ) and ( c ) are correct correct. is ) ( d *6 • Determine the Concept Yes. A net torque is required to change the rotational state of an object. In the absence of a net torque an object continues in whatever state of rotational motion it was at the instant the net torque became zero. 7 • Determine the Concept No. A net torque is required to change the rotational state of an object. A net torque may decrease the angular speed of an object. All we can say for sure is that a net torque will change the angular speed of an object....
