Unformatted text preview: a) After you drop the weights, does your rotational speed increase, decrease, or stay the same? Explain briefly. b) Is angular momentum conserved in this process? Explain briefly. 2. Imagine a wheel rolling without slipping down an inclined track, and a frictionless block sliding down the same track. Both start from rest at the top of the track. Which one reaches the bottom more quickly? Explain your reasoning. constant acceleration, 1D: x(t) = x + v t + at 2 v(t) = v + at a = dv/dt constant acceleration, 1D: x(t) = x + v t + at 2 v(t) = v + at a = dv/dt...
