Lecture 15 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 Right Hand Rule In general, for an object rotating about a fixed (z) axis we can write L z = I ϖ • The direction of L z is + CCW, - CW Wrap fingers on right hand, around angle of rotation, thumb points in direction of L L z =I ϖ ϖ

Lecture 15 Purdue University, Physics 220 6 Spinning Disks A disk of mass M and radius R rotates around the z axis with angular velocity ϖ i . A second identical disk, initially not rotating, is dropped on top of the first. There is friction between the disks, and eventually they rotate together with angular velocity ϖ f . A) ϖ f = ϖ i B) ϖ f = ½ ϖ i C) ϖ f = ¼ ϖ i ϖ i z ϖ f z
