Kinematical equations for constant angular acceleration are obtained in complete analogy to those for linear motion with constant acceleration Example: Hammer Throw ! Throw the "hammer", a 12 cm diameter ball attached to a grip by a steel cable, a maximum distance. The hammer's total length is 121.5 cm, and its total weight is 7.26 kg (4 kg for women). The athlete has to accomplish the throw while not leaving a circle of radius 7 feet (= 2.135 m) ! = ! 0 + " 0t + 1 # t 2 2 ! = ! 0 + "t " = " 0 + #t " = 1 (" + " 0 ) 2 2 " 2 = " 0 + 2# (! $ ! 0 ) Sergei Litvinov (USSR) 84.80m, Seoul `88 Yipsi Moreno (Cuba) 73.33m, Paris `03 http://www.hammerthrowing.co.uk/ March 19, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 3 March 19, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 4 Hammer Throw (2) ! Litvinov took seven turns before releasing hammer. These took 1.52 s, 1.08 s, 0.72 s, 0.56 s, 0.44 s, 0.40 s, and 0.36 s ! Assume frequency increases linearly with time => constant angular acc. ! Question: what is value of !? ! Answer: total time = 1.52 s+...+ 0.36 s = 5.08 s; total angle: Constant angular acceleration: ! = 1 " t2 # " = 2 2! 2 $ 44.0 = = 3.41 s-2 2 2 t (5.08 s) Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 5 Example: Hammer Throw (3) ! Question: Assuming that the radius of the circle on which the hammer moves is 1.67 m (= length of hammer + arms of the athlete), what is the linear speed with which the hammer gets released? ! Answer: Under constant angular acceleration from rest for a period of 5.08 s, the final angular velocity reached is ! all = 7 " 2# = 14# $ 44.0 ! = " t = (3.41 s-2 ) # (5.08 s)=17.3 s-1 ! Velocity: v = r! = (1.67 m) " (17.3 s-1 ) = 28.9 m/s March 19, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 6 March 19, 2006 Example: Hammer Throw (4) ! Question: What is the centripetal acceleration and centripetal force that the hammer thrower has to exert on the hammer right before the hammer gets released? ! Answer: The centripetal acceleration right before release is given by: ac = v! = (28.9 m/s) " (17.3 s-1 ) = 500. m/s 2 Quiz 32.1 ! A Ferris wheel is rotating with a constant angular speed.

This force is provided by the normal force + weight v2 m = N + mg r ! In the limit of zero normal force, we obtain the minimum speed at the top needed to stay on the track: r r N Fg r Fc C v = rg March 19, 2006 Note: larger radius requires larger speed Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 11 Quiz 32.4 Dale Earnhardt Jr drives 150 mph around a circular track at constant speed.
