To: James Maxin From: Jeremy Kaiser; Student Date: Wednesday April 9, 2008 Subject: Technical Memo for Lab 5 experiment 1 Introduction: The purpose of this memo is to analyze the forces on a rotating “mock” satellite when it spins at a constant angular speed. Our group captured a video of a constant rotating propeller, and found the linear speed of a point at 5 separate distances from the axis of rotation. Background: The propeller is placed on a level and seemingly frictionless axis. There were 5 videos taken and each initial velocity was recorded via logger pro. The distances from the center was: .045m , .085m , .100m , .171m , and .216m . Body: Upon completing the lab, we were attained this data from the videos: Distances from the axis Tangential Velocity in m/s before one rotation Tangential Velocity in m/s after one rotation .045 .153 .144 .085 .292 .239 .100 .343 .317 .171 .587 .523 .216 .741 .723 This velocity recorded is the tangential velocity , therefore we had to calculate the angular velocity using v=rΩ therefore we found the angular velocity to be 3.43 radians per second.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
