Unformatted text preview: unit vectors ˆ z pointing vertically along the z-axis, ˆ ρ pointing radially along the axle, and ˆ θ pointing counter-clockwise when viewed from above, as usual. In part b, give the angular momentum about the stationary point where the axle meets the z-axis. Problem 3. K&K, problem 7.3. Assume sin β ∼ = β , but do NOT assume Lβ ¿ l . Show that β will indeed be small if ω s is large enough. 1...
