37. (a) Since τ = dL / dt , the average torque acting during any interval Δ t is given by τ avg =− LL t fi di Δ , where L i is the initial angular momentum and L f is the final angular momentum. Thus, 22 avg 0.800 kg m s 3.00 kg m s 1.47 N m 1.50s ⋅− == , or avg | | 1.47 N m =⋅ . In this case the negative sign indicates that the direction of the torque is opposite the direction of the initial angular momentum, implicitly taken to be positive. (b) The angle turned is 2 0 /2. tt θω α =+ If the angular acceleration α is uniform, then so is the torque and = τ / I . Furthermore, ω 0 = L i / I , and we obtain () ( ) 2 2 2 2 3.00kg m s 1.50s 1.467 N m 1.50s
