Question

A heavy turntable, used for rotating large objects, is a solid
cylindrical wheel that can rotate about its central axle with
negligible friction. The radius of the wheel is 0.330 m. A constant
tangential force of 300 N applied to its edge causes the wheel to
have an angular acceleration of 0.876 rad/s^{2}.

(a)

What is the moment of inertia of the wheel (in kg ·
m^{2})?

_____ kg · m^{2}

(b)

What is the mass (in kg) of the wheel?

_________ kg

(c)

The wheel starts from rest and the tangential force remains constant over a time period of 6.00 s. What is the angular speed (in rad/s) of the wheel at the end of this time period?

________ rad/s
