Question

Now we have a rod-shaped space station of length 1407 m and mass 4.47 x 10^6 kg, which can change its length (kind of like an old-fashioned telescope), without changing its overall mass. Suppose that the station is initially rotating at a constant rate of 2.35 rpm. If the length of the rod is reduced to 2.35 m, what will be the new rotation rate of the space station?

3.86 rpm |

8.37 rpm |

Answer #1

We have a rod-shaped space station of length 1419 m and mass
8.35 x 10^6 kg, which can change its length (kind of like an
old-fashioned telescope), without changing its overall mass.
Suppose that the station is initially rotating at a constant rate
of 1.82 rpm. If the length of the rod is reduced to 1.82 m, what
will be the new rotation rate of the space station?
A. 8.7 rpm
B. 2.32 rpm
C. 7.25 rpm
D. 2.9 rpm

A.) Consider a non-rotating space station in the shape of a long
thin uniform rod of mass 4.20 x 10^6 kg and length 953 meters.
Rocket motors on both ends of the rod are ignited, applying a
constant force of F = 4.40 x 10^5 N to each end of the rod as shown
in the diagram, causing the station to rotate about its center. If
the motors are left running for 1 minutes and 26 seconds before
shutting off,...

thin uniform rod of mass 4.96 x 10^6 kg and length 530 meters.
Rocket motors on both ends of the rod are ignited, applying a
constant force of F = 4.99 x 10^5 N to each end of the rod as shown
in the diagram, causing the station to rotate about its center. If
the motors are left running for 1 minutes and 28 seconds before
shutting off,...

Question 7
This time we have a non-rotating space station in the shape of a
long thin uniform rod of mass 3.73 x 10^6 kg and length 1428
meters. Small probes of mass 7553 kg are periodically launched in
pairs from two points on the rod-shaped part of the station as
shown, launching at a speed of 4962 m/s with respect to the launch
points, which are each located 384 m from the center of the rod.
After 13 pairs...

long thin uniform rod of mass 1.88 x 10^6 kg and length 1447
meters. Small probes of mass 9779 kg are periodically launched in
pairs from two points on the rod-shaped part of the station as
shown, launching at a speed of 3576 m/s with respect to the launch
points, which are each located 412 m from the center of the rod.

Consider a non-rotating space station in the shape of a long
thin uniform rod of mass 6.65 x 10^6 kg and length 574 meters.
Rocket motors on both ends of the rod are ignited, applying a
constant force of F = 9.48 x 10^5 N to each end of the rod as shown
in the diagram, causing the station to rotate about its center. If
the motors are left running for 2 minutes and 21 seconds before
shutting off, then...

THIS IS ALL ONE QUESTION, PLEASE ANSWER ALL PARTS!
a)We have a crate of mass 29.6 kg on an inclined surface, with a
coefficient of kinetic friction 0.144. Instead of pushing on the
crate, you let it slide down due to gravity. What must the angle of
the incline be, in order for the crate to slide with an
acceleration of 6.62 m/s^2?
b)Consider a non-rotating space station in the shape of a long
thin uniform rod of mass 8.10...

A uniform rod of mass 3.40×10−2 kg and length 0.410 m
rotates in a horizontal plane about a fixed axis through its center
and perpendicular to the rod. Two small rings, each with mass 0.190
kg , are mounted so that they can slide along the rod. They are
initially held by catches at positions a distance
5.50×10−2 m on each side from the center of the rod, and
the system is rotating at an angular velocity 28.0 rev/min ....

A propeller consists of two blades each 3.6 m in length and mass
108 kg each. The propeller can be approximated by a single rod
rotating about its center of mass. The propeller starts from rest
and rotates up to 1,210 rpm in 30 seconds at a constant rate.
(Enter the magnitudes.) What is the angular momentum (in kg ·
m2/s) of the propeller at t = 10 s?

1) A torque of 1.20 N m is applied to a thin rod of mass 2.50 kg

a. 32.6 rad/s
b. 8.16 rad/s
c. 97.9 rad/s
d. 24.5 rad/s
2) A torque of 1.20 N m is applied to a thin rod of mass 2.50 kg
and length 50.0 cm pivoted about one end and at rest. How fast is...
