Question

Two ice-skaters, whose masses are 40 kg and 70 kg, hold hands and rotate about a vertical axis that passes between them, making one revolution in 1.5 s. Their centers of mass are separated by 1.7 m, and their center of mass is stationary. Model each skater as a point particle.

(a) Find the angular momentum of the system about it's center of
mass.

1 308J·s

(b) Find the total kinetic energy of the system.

2 J

Answer #1

Two ice skaters hold hands and rotate, making one revolution in
2.47 s. Their masses are 60.0 kg and 73.0 kg, and they are
separated by 1.00 m. Find the angular momentum of the system about
their center of mass. If the skaters pull towards each other and
decrease their separation to 0.50 m, what is the new period of
rotation about the center of mass?

Two ice skaters, with masses of 40 kg and 85 kg, are at the
center of a 60 m -diameter circular rink. The skaters push off
against each other and glide to opposite edges of the rink.
If the heavier skater reaches the edge in 40 s, how long does
the lighter skater take to reach the edge?
Express your answer in seconds.

. Two skaters each of mass 50.0 kg
approach each other along parallel paths separated by 3.00 m. they
have opposite velocities of 1.40 m/s each. One skater holds the end
of a long pole of negligible mass, and the other skater grabs the
other end of it as she passes. Assume the ice provides a
frictionless surface. (a) Describe quantitatively the motion of the
skaters after they have become connected by the pole. (b) Calculate
the kinetic energy of...

In a double-star system, two stars of mass 4.8 x 1030 kg each
rotate about the system's center of mass at radius 1.4 x 1011 m.
(a) What is their common angular speed? (b) If a meteoroid passes
through the system's center of mass perpendicular to their orbital
plane, what minimum speed must it have at the center of mass if it
is to escape to “infinity” from the two-star system?

A cylindrical rod of mass 0.82 kg and length 1.88 m is free to
rotate about a pivot fixed at one end. A ball with a mass of 3.2 kg
is attached to the other end of the rod. The rod-and ball system is
held in a horizontal position by a vertical force that acts 1.41 m
from the pivot. The force is then removed, and the rod-and-ball
swings down.
(a) What was the vertical force used to hold the...

Two children, each with mass m = 24.0 kg, sit on opposite ends
of a narrow board with length L = 4.3 m, width W = 0.22 m, and mass
M = 6.6 kg. The board is pivoted at its center and is free to
rotate in a horizontal circle without friction.
A) What is the rotational inertia of the board plus the children
about a vertical axis through the center of the board?
B) What is the magnitude of...

A cylindrical rod of length 2.0 m, radius 0.5 m, and mass 1.5 kg
has two spheres attached on its ends. The centers of the spheres
are 1.0 m from the center of the rod. The mass of each sphere is
0.66 kg. The rod is capable of rotating about an axis passing
through its center and perpendicular to the plane of the page, but
the set up is stationary to begin with. A small mass of value 0.19
kgmoving...

Two 2.4 kg balls are attached to the ends of a thin rod of
negligible mass, 54 cm in length. The rod is free to rotate in a
vertical plane about a horizontal axis through its center. With the
rod initially horizontal as shown, a 0.33 kg wad of wet putty drops
onto one of the balls with a speed of 3.7 m/sec and sticks to
it.
1)What is the ratio of
the magnitude of angular momentum of the entire...
