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?

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....

On a playground, a merry-go-round with a total mass of 100 kg
and a radius of 2.5mis rotating counterclockwise around its center
with an angular speed of 0.5 rad/s. A girl with a mass of 40 kgruns
at a speed of 4 m/s towards the edge of the merry-go-round and
jumps on, as shown. What is the angularvelocity (magnitude and
direction) of the merry-go-round after the girl lands on it? Assume
the merry-go-roundis a uniform disk and treat the girl...

A child of mass m=15kg stands on a merry-go-round. The radius of
the merry-go-round is R=2m and the mass is M=75kg. The
merry-go-round is considered to be a solid disk. The merry-go round
initially at rest and the child stands near the edge. What will the
angular velocity of the merry-go-round be if the child jumps
off
a.) In the radial direction with a velocity of +4m/s?
b.) perpindicular to the radial direction with a velocity of
+4m/s?
c.) At...

A small child of mass mc is sitting on the edge of a large
merry-go-round which is initially at rest. For simplicity, assume
the merry-go-round is a uniform disk of mass mm and radius R. An
ice-cream truck drives by and in a moment of benevolence, the
driver hurls a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream at the child. The
scoop has mass ms and is traveling parallel to the ground and
tangent to the merry-go-round at a speed of...
