59. Their angular velocities, when they are stuck to each other, are equal, regardless of whether they share the same central axis. The initial rotational inertia of the system is II I I M R 0 2 1 2 =+ = bigdisk smalldisk bigdisk where using Table 10-2(c). Similarly, since the small disk is initially concentric with the big one, Im r smalldisk = 1 2 2 . After it slides, the rotational inertia of the small disk is found from the parallel axis theorem (using h = R r ). Thus, the new rotational inertia of the system is () 2 22 11 . I MR mr m R r + (a) Angular momentum conservation,
