If α has the same sign as ω0, then the angular speed, which is the magnitude of the angular velocity ω, is increasing. On the other hand, If α and ω0 have opposite signs, then the
angular speed is decreasing. SOLUTION According to Equation 8.4, we know that ω = ω0 + α t. Therefore, we find: ( ) ( 2.0 s ) = + 18 rad /s . The angular speed is 18 rad/s . ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 2.0 s ) = − 18 rad /s. The angular speed is 18 rad/s . (a) ω = + 12 rad /s + +3.0 rad /s 2 (b) ω = + 12 rad /s + −3.0 rad /s 2 ( 2.0 s ) = + 6.0 rad /s. The angular speed is 6.0 rad/s .
(c) ω = − 12 rad /s + +3.0 rad /s 2 ( 2.0 s ) = − 6.0 rad /s. The angular speed is 6.0 rad /s .
(d) ω = − 12 rad /s + −3.0 rad /s 2 Chapter 8 Problems 9. 397 SSM REASONING Equation 8.4 α = (ω − ω 0 ) / t indicates that the average angular acceleration is equal to the change in the angular velocity divided by the elapsed time. Since
the wheel starts from rest, its initial angular velocity is ω0 = 0 rad/s. Its final angular velocity
is given as ω = 0.24 rad/s. Since the average angular acceleration is given as
α = 0.030 rad/s 2 , Equation 8.4 can be solved to determine the elapsed time t.
SOLUTION Solving Equation 8.4 for the elapsed time gives t= ω − ω 0 0.24 rad/s − 0 rad/s
= 8.0 s
0.030 rad/s 2 10. REASONING AND SOLUTION Using Equation 8.4 and the appropriate conversion
factors, the average angular acceleration of the CD in rad/s2 is α= 2 ∆ω 210 rev/ min − 480 rev/ min 2π rad 1 min −3
= = – 6.4 × 10 rad/s
∆t 74 min 1 rev 60 s The magnitude of the average angular acceleration is 6.4 × 10−3 rad/s2 .
11. REASONING The average angular velocity ω is defined as the angular displacement
∆θ divided by the elapsed time ∆t during which the displacement occurs: ω = ∆θ / ∆t
(Equation 8.2). Solving for the elapsed time gives ∆t = ∆θ / ω . We are given ∆θ and can
calculate ω from the fact that the earth rotates on its axis once every 24.0 hours.
−3 SOLUTION The sun itself subtends an angle of 9.28 × 10 rad. When the sun moves a
distance equal to its diameter, it moves through an angle that is also 9.28 × 10 rad; thus,
−3 ∆θ = 9.28 × 10 rad. The average angular velocity ω at which the sun appears to move
across the sky is the same as that of the earth rotating on its axis, ωearth , so ω = ωearth . Since the earth makes one revolution (2π rad) every 24.0 h, its average angular velocity is ωearth = ∆θ earth
∆tearth = 2π rad
24.0 h 2π rad
= 7.27 ×10−5 rad/s 3600 s ( 24.0 h ) 1h The time it takes for the sun to move a distance equal to its diameter is
∆t = ∆θ ωearth = 9.28 ×10−3 rad
= 128 s (a little over 2 minutes)

For A θ = sA/rA For B θ = sB/rB (8.1) Equating these two equations for θ and solving for sB gives
sB = (rB/rA)sA = [(1.10 × 103 m)/(3.20 × 102 m)](2.40 × 102 m) = 825 m 13. REASONING AND SOLUTION The people meet at time t. At this time the magnitudes
of their angular displacements must total 2π rad. θ1 + θ2 = 2π rad
Then ω1t + ω2t = 2π rad
t= 2π rad
= 1200 s
ω1 + ω 2 1.7 × 10 rad/s + 3.4 × 10−3 rad/s 14. REASONING It does not matter whether the arrow is aimed closer to or farther away from
the axis. The blade edge sweeps through the open angular space as a rigid unit. This means
that a point closer to the axis has a smaller distance to travel along the circular arc in order
to bridge the angular opening and correspondingly has a smaller tangential speed. A point
farther from the axis has a greater distance to travel along the circular arc but
correspondingly has a greater tangential speed. These speeds have just the right values so
that all points on the blade edge bridge the angular opening in the same time interval.
The rotational speed of the blades must not be so fast that one blade rotates into the open
angular space while part of the arrow is still there. A faster arrow speed means that the
arrow spends less time in the open space. Thus, the blades can rotate more quickly into the
open space without hitting the arrow, so the maximum value of the angular speed ω
increases with increasing arrow speed v.
A longer arrow traveling at a given speed means that some part of the arrow is in the open
space for a longer time. To avoid hitting the arrow, then, the blades must rotate more
slowly. Thus, the maximum value of the angular speed ω decreases with increasing arrow
length L. Chapter 8 Problems 399 The time during which some part of the arrow remains in the open angular space is tArrow.
The time it takes for the edge of a propeller blade to rotate through the open angular space
between the blades is tBlade. The maximum angular speed is the angular speed such that these
