Question

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!!

Answer #1

A 24.5kg child is standing on the outer edge of the horizontal
merry go round that has a moment of inertia 989 kg*m^2 about a
vertical axis through its center and a radius of 2.40m. 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
1.10m from the center of the merry go round.

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...

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 playground merry-go-round of radius R = 2.6 m has a moment of
inertia of I = 200 kg*m^2. and is rotating at a rate of ω
= 11 rev/min around a frictionless vertical axis. Facing the axle,
a 39 kg child hops onto the merry-go-round and manages to sit down
on the edge. What is the new angular speed of the merry-go-round
(in rev/min)

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 playground merry-go-round of radius 1.9 m has a moment of
inertia 139 kg.m2 and is rotating at 9 rev/min about a frictionless
vertical axle. Facing the axle, a 27 kg child hops onto the
merry-go-round, and manages to sit down on the edge. What is the
new angular speed of the merry-go-round?

A playground merry-go-round has a mass of 120 kg and a radius of
1.80 m and it is rotating with an angular velocity of 0.600 rev/s.
What is its angular velocity (in rev/s) after a 28.0 kg child gets
onto it by grabbing its outer edge? The child is initially at
rest.
rev/s

A playground merry-go-round of radius R = 1.60 m has a
moment of inertia I = 255 kg·m2 and is rotating
at 11.0 rev/min about a frictionless vertical axle. Facing the
axle, a 25.0 kg child hops onto the merry-go-round and manages to
sit down on its edge. What is the new angular speed of the
merry-go-round?

A playground merry-go-round has a mass of 120 kg and a radius of
1.80 m and it is rotating with an angular velocity of 0.400 rev/s.
What is its angular velocity (in rev/s) after a 26.0 kg child gets
onto it by grabbing its outer edge? The child is initially at rest.
