A merry-goround (disk of mass m = 200 kg, radius R = 1.6m) is rotating clockwise at a an angular speed of w = 0.5 rad s . A kid of mass m = 50kg is riding on the edge of the merry-go-round. At a particular point in time, the kid jumps off the merry-go-round at a speed v = 5.0 m/s relative to the ground, at an angle of 53 degrees below the x-axis. Part 1: What is the initial angular momentum of the system (kid + merry-go-round)? Part 2: What is the final angular velocity of the merry-go-round?
