Question

A playground merry-go-round has a moment of inertia of 600 kg
m^{2}. When the merry-go-round is at rest, a 20 kg boy runs
at 5.9 m/s along a line tangential to the rim and jumps on, landing
on the rim a distance of 3.0 m from the rotation axis of the
merry-go-round. The angular velocity of the merry-go-round is
then:

A.1.2 rad/s

B.0.38 rad/s

C.0.45 rad/s

D.0.56 rad/s

E.0.72 rad/s

Answer #1

Moment of inertia of the merry-go-round = I = 600
kg.m^{2}

Mass of the boy = m = 20 kg

Speed at which the boy is running before jumping on the merry-go-round = V = 5.9 m/s

Distance the boy jumps on the merry-go-round from the axis = R = 3 m

Angular velocity of the merry-go-round after the boy jumps on it =

By conservation of angular momentum,

= 0.45 rad/s

**Angular velocity of the merry-go-round after the boy
jumps on it = 0.45 rad/s**

A playground merry-go-round with a moment of inertia of 300 kg
m2 is rotating with no friction at an angular velocity
of 2.3 rad/s. Sharon, whose mass is 70 kg, runs and jumps on the
merry-go-round in such a way that after she jumps on it the
merry-go round stops. How fast, in m/s was she running if the
merry-go-round had a radius of 2.5 m? Enter only the numerical
value of your answer to 2 significant figures. Do not...

A 5.0-m radius playground merry-go-round with a moment of
inertia of 2000 kg?m2 is rotating freely with an angular speed of
3.0 rad/s. Two people, each having a mass of 60 kg are standing
right outside the edge of the merry-go-round. One person radially
steps on the edge merry-go-round with negligible speed and the
angular speed changes to ?1. A few seconds later, the second person
radially steps on the merry-go-round with negligible speed but at
distance of 4.0 m...

A playground merry-go-round has a radius R and a rotational
inertia I. When the merry-go-round is at rest, a child with mass m
runs with speed v along a line tangent to the rim and jumps on. The
angular velocity of the merry-go-round is then
