PHY2048 Unit 4 Assignment Show all your steps and draw diagrams where necessary. Add explanatory notes where necessary. 1. As you press down on the accelerator of your car you see the tachometer climb steadily from 1200 rpm to 5500 rpm in 2.5 s. (a) What is the angular acceleration of the car? (b) What is the tangential acceleration of a point on the edge of the engine’s 3.8 cm diameter crankshaft? (c) How many revolutions does the engine make during this time? (d) If the moment of inertia of the crankshaft is 0.009 kg.m 2 , what is the torque generated by the engine? (e) What is the kinetic energy of the crankshaft at its maximum rpm? What is its angular momentum at that time? 2. A 30-cm diameter circular saw blade has a mass of 0.9 kg distributed uniformly in a disc. (a) What is its rotational kinetic energy when it is operating at 4000 rpm?

    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.
