A uniform disk of radius R is suspended at its edge as shown in Figure 1. It is free to swing back and forth in the plane of the disk. What is the frequency of small oscillation of the disk? (Hint: The angular momentum of the disk is I = mR 2 + 1 2 mR 2 = 3 2 mR 2 ) θ Figure 1: 4. Floating boat (a). A block of wood of mass
