Question

A child with a mass of 50 kg is standing at the edge of a merry-go-round which has a radius of 3.50 m and a mass of 700 kg. The merry-go-around is initially at rest. The child throws a 1.20 kg stone perpendicular to the merry-go-round's radius at a speed of 6.0 m/s. What is the resulting angular speed of the entire system? Friction is negligible and the merry-go-round is a uniform disk. The child is classified as a point mass.

Answer #1

Answer

a 40 kg child is standing on the edge of a 100 kg merry go
round( flat disk), with a radius of 4m. The merry go round is
initially traveling at 20 rads/s. The child walks towards the
center of the merry go round , until she is 0.5m from the center.
What is the final angular speed other child at the new
location?

Billy (mass = 50 kg) stands on the edge of a merry-go-round,
which is a disc with a radius R = 2.0 m and a mass M = 100 kg.
Annie begins spinning the merry-go-round (and Billy) by pushing on
it with a force of 20 N tangent to its edge for 20 s.
(a) What are (i) the torque Annie imparts on the merry-go-round
(with Billy on it) and (ii) the resulting angular acceleration
during the 20 second interval?...

A 40 kg child (point mass) rides on the outer edge of a
merry-go-round, which is a large disk of mass 150 kg and radius 1.5
m. The merry-go-round spins with an angular velocity of 12 rpm.
What is the merry-go-round’s angular velocity in radians per second
(rad/s)? What is the total rotational inertia (moment of inertia)
of the child and merry-go-round together? What is the rotational
kinetic energy (in joules) of the merry-go-round and child
together? What magnitude of...

A 24.5-kg child is standing on the outer edge of a horizontal
merry-go-round that has a moment of inertia of about a vertical
axis through its center and a radius of 2.40 m. The entire system
(including the child) is initially rotating at 0.180 rev/s. Find
the angular velocity if the child moves to a new position 1.10 m
from the center of the merry-go-round... Please explain!!

Two children, Angelica (mass 25 kg) and Boris (mass 50 kg), are
playing on a merry-go-round (which you can assume is a solid disk
with mass 225 kg and radius 1.5m). Assume that any friction on the
axle of the merry-go-round is negligible.
Part A: Angelica starts spinning the merry-go-round, giving it
an angular velocity of 8 rad/s, then she stops pushing it. Boris
runs with a speed of 6 m/s directly toward the center of the
merry-go-round. He jumps...

Three children are riding on the edge of a merry-go-round that
is 105 kg, has a 1.60-m radius, and is spinning at 22.0 rpm. The
children have masses of 22.0, 28.0, and 33.0 kg. If the child who
has a mass of 28.0 kg moves to the center of the merry-go-round,
what is the new angular velocity in rpm? Ignore friction, and
assume that the merry-go-round can be treated as a solid disk and
the children as points.

Three children are riding on the edge of a merry-go-round that
is 105 kg, has a 1.70-m radius, and is spinning at 24.0 rpm. The
children have masses of 22.0, 28.0, and 33.0 kg. If the child who
has a mass of 28.0 kg moves to the center of the merry-go-round,
what is the new angular velocity in rpm? Ignore friction, and
assume that the merry-go-round can be treated as a solid disk and
the children as points.

In the figure here, a 31 kg child stands on the edge of a
stationary merry-go-round of radius 2.4 m. The rotational inertia
of the merry-go-round about its rotation axis is 120
kg·m2. The child catches a ball of mass 1.4 kg thrown by
a friend. Just before the ball is caught, it has a horizontal
velocity of magnitude 9 m/s, at angle φ = 49 ˚ with a line
tangent to the outer edge of the merry-go-round, as shown....

A disk-shaped merry-go-round of radius 2.93 m and mass 185 kg
rotates freely with an angular speed of 0.621 rev/s . A 60.4 kg
person running tangential to the rim of the merry-go-round at 3.51
m/s jumps onto its rim and holds on. Before jumping on the
merry-go-round, the person was moving in the same direction as the
merry-go-round's rim.
What is the final angular speed of the merry-go-round?

A disk-shaped merry-go-round of radius 2.13 m and mass 185 kg
rotates freely with an angular speed of 0.631 rev/s . A 58.4 kg
person running tangential to the rim of the merry-go-round at 3.11
m/s jumps onto its rim and holds on. Before jumping on the
merry-go-round, the person was moving in the same direction as the
merry-go-round's rim.
Part A What is the final angular speed of the
merry-go-round?
