Each of the 4 forces applied to it might contribute to the torque. Rank the magnitudes of the torques τA, τB, τC, τD. A B C ϑ 2) Our astronaut has goUen stuck in space again while trying to repair the shuUle’s wheel. This Yme, both the wheel and the astronaut are staYonary. While the astronaut clearly failed to learn how to stay aUached to the shuUle, he did at least learn more about linear momentum, so he throws the wheel to the le[ in an aUempt to return to the shuUle. However, when he throws the wheel, it begins to spin. D Imagine the astronaut to be represented by the diagram in problem 1, but without any of those forces acYng on it. Treat the astronaut (m=100kg) as a thin rod (I=m L2/12, same shape as the diagram of problem 1) of length 1.8m. Treat the wheel (m= 35kg, r=0.3m) as a solid disk (I=m r2 / 2). A[er being thrown, the wheel is spinning with an angular velocity of ω=0.7 rad / s (in to the page). A) (30%) Draw an angular momentum chart for the astronaut and the wheel. B) (30%) What is the angular velocity of the astronaut a[er he throws the wheel? Is he rotaYng clockwise or counter ­clockwise? Useful EquaYons: L = I ω; L=r p sin θ; p = m v; τ=r F sinθ; ω=v / r ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
