Give as numerical values and as fractions of Solution: ( ) rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad rad P5. A child rolls a ball on a level floor 3.5 m to another child. If the ball makes 15.0 revolutions, what is its diameter? Solution: With each revolution, the ball rolls along the floor distance equal to the circumference: 2 m m m P7. (a) A grinding wheel 0.35 m in diameter rotates at 2500 rpm. Calculate its angular velocity in rad/s. (b) What are the linear speed and acceleration of a point on the edge of the grinding wheel? Solution: 1 min 1 sec revolutions revolutions revolutions s 2 revolution 2 revolutions revolution radians 2 revolutions revolution radians radians rad s m/s There is no tangential acceleration, only centripetal: m/s P11. How fast (in rpm) must a centrifuge rotate if a particle 7.0 cm from the axis of rotation is to experience an acceleration of 100, 000 g's? Solution: rad s m 1 If the angular velocity is constant, there will be no tangential acceleration. There will be only centripetal acceleration (which is in the radial direction, towards the center): m/s m/s ! ! m/s m rad s rad 1s revolution rad min 60 s rpm P21. The tires of a car make 65 revolutions as the car reduces its speed uniformly from 95 km/h to 45 km/h. The tires have a diameter of 0.80 m (a) What was the angular acceleration of the tires? (b) If the car continues to decelerate at this rate, how much more time is required for it to stop? Solution: If the tires do not slip: the linear velocity along the edge of the tires is equal to the linear velocity of the center of the tires which is equal to the linear velocity of the car itself. km/h km/h m/s m/s " # # # m/s # m/s 4 m ! 2 rad = # 4.133 rad s " rad s m/s 4 m " # 4.133 rad s $ s P33. To get a flat, uniform cylindrical satellite spinning at the correct rate, engineers fire four tangential rockets as shown in the diagram. If the satellite has a mass of 3600 kg and a radius of 4.0 m, what is the required steady force of each rocket if the satellite is to reach 32 rpm in 5.0 min? Solution: All the forces will balance out there will be no net force. 2 The torque of the forces, however, will not cancel out, but it will add up, because each force will cause rotation in the same direction. %& %& The angular acceleration of the satellite will be: rev min rad 1 rev min 60 s s min rad s # min rad s The torque is proportional to the angular acceleration. The coefficient of proportionality is the Moment of Inertia, which for a solid cylinder is equal to & ' % & & kg m rad s ! N.m ! m N.m N P37. A centrifuge rotor rotating at 10,300 rpm is shut off and is eventually brought uniformly to rest by a frictional torque of 1.20 N ( m. If the mass of the rotor is 4.80 kg and it can be approximated as a solid cylinder of radius 0.0710 m, through how many revolutions will the rotor turn before coming to rest, and how long will it take? Solution: ' & ' # kg N.m m # rad s The acceleration is negative, because the rotor is being stopped, that is the torque is opposite to the direction of rotation. rev min min 60 sec rad rev ! rad s " rad s !

Solution: ) * ' rev min min 60 sec kg.m . How much energy ! # kg.m rad rev J 3 P44. An automobile engine develops a torque of 280 N ( m at 3800 rpm. What is the power in watts and in horsepower? Solution: + % ( * , , , ( ! ( + ( ( N.m W hp W rev min min 60 sec rad rev W hp P45. A bowling ball of mass 7.3 kg and radius 9.0 cm rolls without slipping down a lane at 3.3 m/s. Calculate its total kinetic energy. Solution: When there is no slipping the translational velocity of the ball is equal to the translation velocity of the points on the edge of the ball & ) * ) * ) * J " ) * " ' " & & P47. A merry-go-round has a mass of 1640 kg and a radius of 7.50 m. How much net work is required to accelerate it from rest to a rotation rate of 1.00 revolution per 8.00 s? Assume it is a solid cylinder. Solution: rad s rad rev rev 8.00 s =0.7854 rad s * + ) * ) * + (work done by non-conservative forces) ' # ' & # kg ! J J m 0.7854 rad s P54. A diver can reduce her moment of inertial by a factor of about 3.5 when changing from the straight position to the tuck position. If she makes 2.0 rotations in 1.5s when in the tuck position, what is her angular speed (rev/s) when in the straight position? Solution: There is no net torque ' ' The angular momentum is conserved 4 ' ' rev s ' ' rev s P65. An asteroid of mass 1.0 ! kg, traveling at a speed of 30 km/s relative to the Earth, hits the Earth at the equator tangentially, and in the direction of Earth's rotation. Use angular momentum to estimate the percent change in the angular momentum to estimate the percent change in the angular speed of the Earth as a result of the collision. Solution: The angular momentum is conserved. # ! rad/s & # ! rad/s s ' # & #* /. " ' ' "' ' "' ' " ' # ' "' # ' "' ' "' ' # ' "' ' '* # & 0 & & & # 0 & " & & # 0 " % 5 ...
