Since its outer rim is moving at the same speed as the falling mass, 5.00 s m : ϖ r v = rad/s 51 . 13 m 370 . 0 m/s 00 . 5 = = = r v therefore ; 2 1 2 I KE = ( 29 ( 29 2 2 2 2 m kg 622 . 0 or m kg 6224 . 0 s rad 51 . 13 J 8 . 56 2 2

Unformatted text preview: = = = KE I (b) The wheels mass is 280 2 s m 8 . 9 N = 28.6 kg. The wheel with the largest possible moment of inertia would have all this mass concentrated in its rim. Its moment of inertia would be ( 29 ( 29 2 2 2 m kg 92 . 3 m 370 . kg 6 . 28 = = = MR I The bosss wheel is physically impossible....
