Athe speed of the box is related to the angular speed

This preview shows page 8 - 9 out of 9 pages.

(a)The speed of the box is related to the angular speed of the wheel by v = R , so that K m v v K m box box box box m/ s 1 2 2 141 2 . implies that the angular speed is = 1.41/0.20 = 7.07 rad/s. Thus, the kinetic energy of rotation is 1 2 2 100 I . J.

    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.
