2)
A solid disk of mass m is rolling a long a surface. Its center has the velocity v.
What is the kinetic energy of the disk?
3)
The falling block causes the disk to rotate. What is the speed of the block
after it has been fallen a distance

Suppose that during a holiday trip to Antalya, you have bought a classic
watch working with simple pendulum. You brought it to Ankara. Then after a
while your physicist friend tells you this watch will not work properly.
a)
Is that true? Will watch shows correct time?
Is it late or early?
Explain why?
b)
Write the total energy of rotating disk with a torsional oscillator in
terms of l, and
.
κ
Hint: As you may know gravitational acceleration in Ankara is less than in
Antalya.
10)
Write the units of
I
,
θ
,
T
, and
.
κ
a)
Does torsional constant
depend on the torque applied? Give your
κ
reasoning.
b)
Does oscillation period T depend on the torque applied? Give your reasoning.
11)Using your results from the previous experiments try to write down a relation
for the torque applied on a torsional oscillator (in terms of displacements and the
relevant torsional oscillator constants). Be careful with the signs.
12) Write down the energy of a torsional oscillator.
13) Write down the rotational analogous of the Hooke’s Law. Check the units.
14) Write down the frequency (or period) of the small oscillations regarding the
spring constant in rotational motion. Again check the units.
