Question

Three children are riding on the edge of a merry-go-round that is 142 kg, has a 1.60 m radius, and is spinning at 17.3 rpm. The children have masses of 22.4, 29.0, and 38.8 kg. If the child who has a mass of 38.8 kg moves to the center of the merry-go-round, what is the new angular velocity in rpm?

Answer #1

In this we'll use the conservation of angular momentum principle,

Moment of inertia of 1st child

Moment of inertia of 2nd child

Moment of inertia of 3rd child

Since the merry-go-round will spin about an axis that passes through it center, thus in the second case when the 3rd child will move to the center of mass of merry-go-round then it wil not contribute in the moment of inertia of system.

Thus, we can write moment of inertias of all as

Using given values in above,

Three children are riding on the edge of a merry-go-round that
is 142 kg, has a 1.60 m radius, and is spinning at 19.3 rpm. The
children have masses of 22.4, 30.5, and 34.8 kg. If the child who
has a mass of 34.8 kg moves to the center of the merry-go-round,
what is the new angular velocity in rpm?

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.

Three children are riding on the edge of a merry-go-round that
is a solid disk with a mass of 95.8 kg and a radius of 1.72 m. The
merry-go-round is initially spinning at 5.84 revolutions/minute.
The children have masses of 29.0 kg, 28.2 kg and 33.6 kg. If the
child who has a mass of 28.2 kg moves to the center of the
merry-go-round, what is the new angular velocity in
revolutions/minute?

Three children are riding on the
edge of a merry-go-round that is a disk of mass 92 kg, radius 1.4

10 kids are riding on a merry-go-round. The merry-go-round has a
radius of 3 m and a mass of 2000 kg, and it is spinning with an
angular velocity of 2 rad/s. The kids are riding at the rim of the
merry-go-round, and they each have a mass of 30 kg. All of the kids
jump radially off the merry-go-round, all at the same time. What
would the angular velocity of the merry-go-round be after the kids
jump off?

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!!

. In a park, four children are riding on a merry-go-round with a
radius of 2.2 m and a mass of 300 kg. The children have an average
mass of 45 kg each, and they are initially each standing 2.0 m from
the center of the merry-go-round. The merry-go-round is rotating at
a speed of 0.25 revolutions per second. The children then move
inwards towards the center of the merry-go-round, so they are
standing 0.5 m from the center. What...
