From the angular displacement 13 . 7 of the two bul let holes in the disks and the rotational speed 1130 rev / min of the disks, we can determine the speed v of the bullet. 13 . 7 v 1130 rpm 62 . 3 cm What is the speed of the bullet? Correct answer: 308 . 317 m / s (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : = 1130 rev / min , d = 62 . 3 cm , and = 13 . 7 . From = t the time to pass through an angle is t = = (13 . 7 ) (118 . 333 rad / s) rad 180 = 0 . 00202065 s . Then the speed of the bullet is v = d t = (62 . 3 cm) (0 . 01 m / cm) . 00202065 s = 308 . 317 m / s . Question 2, chap 12, sect 2. part 1 of 2 10 points A wheel starts from rest and rotates with constant angular acceleration to an angular speed of 7 . 72 rad / s in 2 . 3 s. Find the magnitude of the angular acceler ation of the wheel. Correct answer: 3 . 35652 rad / s 2 (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Angular acceleration is defined by, = d dt When the angular acceleration is constant, we can replace the differentials with simply differences, = t = f i t The angle through which the wheel rotates during this time interval is, = 1 2 t 2 Question 3, chap 12, sect 2. part 2 of 2 10 points Find the angle in radians through which it rotates in this time. Correct answer: 8 . 878 rad (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Question 4, chap 12, sect 2. part 1 of 1 10 points The tub of a washer goes into its spin dry cycle, starting from rest and reaching an angular speed of 4 . 1 rev / s in 8 . 2 s. At this point the person doing the laundry opens the lid, and a safety switch turns off the washer. The tub slows to rest in 10 . 1 s. Through how many revolutions does the tub turn? Assume constant angular accelera tion while it is starting and stopping. homework 07 KIM, JI Due: Oct 17 2007, 4:00 am 2 Correct answer: 37 . 515 rev (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Given : = 4 . 1 rev / s , t 1 = 8 . 2 s , and t 2 = 10 . 1 s . = av t = i + f 2 t = f 2 t since i = 0, so while speeding up, 1 = 4 . 1 rev / s 2 (8 . 2 s) = 16 . 81 rev , and while decelerating, 2 = 4 . 1 rev / s 2 (10 . 1 s) = 20 . 705 rev . Thus = 1 + 2 = 37 . 515 rev . Question 5, chap 12, sect 5. part 1 of 1 10 points A circular disk with a mass m and radius R is mounted at its center, about which it can rotate freely. The disk has moment of inertia I = (1 / 2) mR 2 . A light cord wrapped around it supports a weight mg . Find the total kinetic energy of the system, when the weight is moving at a speed v ....
