Lesson 9 Homework 1. What is the arc length subtended by an angle of π /4 rad on a circle of radius 50 cm? 2. What is the degree measure of an angle π /9? 3. What is the radian measure of an angle 130 o ? 4. A satellite in a circular orbit has a period of 10 hours. What is its frequency in revolutions per day? 5. The blades of a helicopter rotor describe an angle of 14 π rad each second. (i) What is the angular speed of the rotor in rpm? (ii) If the length of a blade is 2.3 m, what is the linear speed of the tip of a blade? 6. A 0.5-kg stone tied to a 1.2 m string is whirled in a horizontal circle so that the radius of the circle is the same as the length of the string. (a) Express the speed of the stone in terms of the radius (r) of the circle and the frequency (f) of revolution. (b) Express the centripetal acceleration in terms of r and f (c) What is the minimum frequency of revolution for the centripetal acceleration be the same as the acceleration of free fall g? 7.
