A massless meter stick is fixed at point C, which is at a distance L (25
cm) from its left-hand end. The rod is free to rotate at point C. If a
downward force of 187.5 N is applied at point A. what is the
minimum force that must be applied at point B to k
A uniform meter stick weighing 30 N has a 40 N weigth on its left end
and a 20 N weight on its right end. The bar is hung from a rope. What
is the tension in the rope and how far from the left end of the bar
should the rope be attached so that the stick r
A kid rides on the edge of a merry-go-round as it rotates
counterclockwise (when viewed from above). The kid holds a ball
straight out from the edge of the merry-go-round and releases it.
Which is the correct path followed by the ball after it is released
A man with a mass of 100 kg sits on a large seesaw 6 m from the center. Two children each
with a mas of 20 kg are seated on the other side of the seesaw. One child seats 5 m from the
center. How far from the center should the other child seat to balance t
A spinning disk is rotating at a rate of 2 rad/s in the positive
counterclock-wise direction. If the disk is slowing down at a rate
of 4 rad/s2, Find the wheel's angular velocity in rad/s after 4 s.
o = o + t.
o = 2 + (-4*4) negative because slowing down
A cyclist starts from rest and pedals such that the wheels of his bike have a constant
After 14 s, the wheels have made 44 rev.
-What is the angular velocity of the wheels after 14 s in rad/s ?
=56 rev * 2 rad/1 rev
A battery-driven Percy engine goes around a track (radius 30 cm) in 55 seconds.
What is its angular speed?
o T= 55 sec.
o W=? = distance/time
o W= 2 rad/ 55 sec
What is its tangential speed?
o V= r * w

A bicyclist rides with a constant velocity of 9 m/s (see figure). Consider the motion of a piece
of gum stuck to her tire (radius 0.24 m).
What is the magnitude of its angular velocity vector?
o V= r*w
o 9 m/s = .24 m * w w= (9 m/s)/ .24m
o w = 37.5 1/s
