How much work is required to get the sphere rolling with an angular speed of 27 rad / s on a horizontal surface? Assume the sphere starts from rest and rolls without slipping. Correct answer: 2181 . 53 J (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: The expression for the rotational energy of a body spinning is given by K rotation = 1 2 I 2 = 1 2 (1 . 71 kg m 2 ) (27 rad / s) 2 = 623 . 295 J . For a sphere the moment of inertia I about the center is I = 2 5 mr 2 = 2 5 (190 kg) (0 . 15 m) 2 = 1 . 71 kg m 2 . The expression for the translational energy of a body is given by K translation = 1 2 mv 2 = 1 2 (190 kg) (4 . 05 m / s) 2 = 1558 . 24 J . The work (equal to the kinetic energy) is W = 1 2 mv 2 + 1 2 I 2 = 1 2 (190 kg) (4 . 05 m / s) 2 + 1 2 (1 . 71 kg m 2 ) (27 rad / s) 2 = 2181 . 53 J . Question 2, chap 13, sect 4. part 1 of 1 10 points A 2 kg object moves in a circle of radius 4 m at a constant speed of 3 m / s. A net force of 4 . 5 N acts on the object. What is the magnitude of the angular mo mentum bardbl vector L bardbl of the object with respect to an axis perpendicular to the circle and through its center? 1. bardbl vector L bardbl = 24 kg m 2 s correct 2. bardbl vector L bardbl = 9 N m kg 3. bardbl vector L bardbl = 18 N m kg 4. bardbl vector L bardbl = 12 m 2 s 5. bardbl vector L bardbl = 13 . 5 kg m 2 s 2 Explanation: The angular momentum is bardbl vector L bardbl = mv r = (2 kg) (3 m / s)(4 m) = 24 kg m 2 s . Question 3, chap 13, sect 4. part 1 of 1 10 points A solid steel sphere of density 7 . 76 g / cm 3 and mass 0 . 2 kg spins on an axis through its center with a period of 1 . 3 s. Given V sphere = 4 3 R 3 , what is its angular momentum? Correct answer: 0 . 000129831 kg m 2 / s (toler ance 1 %). Explanation: The definition of density is M V = M 4 3 R 3 , Therefore R = bracketleftbigg 3 M 4 bracketrightbigg 1 3 = bracketleftbigg 3 (0 . 2 kg) 4 (7760 kg / m 3 ) bracketrightbigg 1 3 = 0 . 0183243 m . homework 26 PAPAGEORGE, MATT Due: Apr 1 2008, 4:00 am 2 Using = 2 T = 2 (1 . 3 s) = 4 . 83322 s 1 and I = 2 5 M R 2 = 2 5 (0 . 2 kg)(0 . 0183243 m) 2 = 2 . 68623 10 5 kg m 2 , we have L I = 4 M R 2 5 T = 4 (0 . 2 kg)(0 . 0183243 m) 2 5 (1 . 3 s) = . 000129831 kg m 2 / s . Question 4, chap 13, sect 4. part 1 of 1 10 points A small metallic bob is suspended from the ceiling by a thread of negligible mass. The ball is then set in motion in a horizontal circle so that the thread describes a cone. v 2 . 3 m 7 . 7 kg 1 9 g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 Calculate the magnitude of the angular mo mentum of the bob about the supporting point....
