Example
A disk with mass 15 Kg and radius 0.4 m is pivoted at its center. A constant torque of 30 Nm supplied by a motor
turns the disk from rest. (a) Calculate the work produced by the motor from
t
= 0 to
t
= 8 s. (b) Find the average
power provided by the motor from
t
= 0 to
t
= 8 s. (c) Find the instantaneous power output of the motor at
t
= 8 s.
Ans
: (a) 24 kJ (b) 3 kW (c) 6 kW

is pivoted at point
O
, and it is released from rest as shown at an angle
θ
up from the horizontal direction. Find the angular velocity of the rod whenit swings down to the vertical position.
