A person of mass 75 kg stands at the center of a rotating merry-go-round platform of radius 3.4 m and moment of inertia 1400 kg·m2. The platform rotates without friction with angular velocity 1.5 rad/s. The person walks radially to the edge of the platform.

(a) Calculate the angular velocity when the person reaches the edge. rad/s
(b) Calculate the rotational kinetic energy of the system of platform plus person before and after the person's walk. J (before) J (after)
