Do not store equations in your calculator. You need to show all of your work for full credit. ________________________________________________________________________________ A disk rotates about its central axis starting from rest and accelerates with constant angular acceleration. At one time it is rotating at 20.0 rev/s; 80 revolutions later, its angular speed is 25 rev/s. a) What is the angular acceleration? We use the kinematics equation which relates angular velocity with angular displacement. The

Unformatted text preview: angular acceleration of the disk is ω 2 2 – ω 1 2 = 2αΔθ α = (ω ⇒ 2 2 – ω 1 2 )/(2Δθ) = 1.41 rev/s 2 (= 8.85 rad/s 2 ) b) What is the time required to complete the 80 revolutions? Using the kinematics equation for angular velocity, we get ω 2 = ω 1 + αΔt Δt = (ω ⇒ 2- ω 1 )/α = 3.55 s c) What is the number of revolutions from rest until the time the disk reaches the 25 rev/s angular speed? Like part a), we use the kinematics equation which relates angular velocity with angular displacement. This time we know the angular acceleration but the angular displacement is unknown. ω 2 2 – 0 2 = 2αθ θ = ω ⇒ 2 2 /2α = 222 rev...

### What students are saying

• 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.
