Question

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

Answer #1

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.
Answer to 3 significant figures.

A playground merry-go-round (of mass 123 kg and radius 1.90 m)
is rotating with an angular velocity of 4.42 rad/s. A 23.7 kg
child, initially at rest, suddenly jumps on the merry-go-round by
grabbing onto its outer edge. How much kinetic energy (in J) is
lost in this inelastic collision?

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)

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 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 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!!

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 playground merry-go-round of radius ? = 2.0 m has a moment of
inertia ? = 250 kg ⋅ m^2 is rotating at 15 rpm about a
frictionless, vertical axle. Facing the axle, a 25-kg child hops
onto the merry-goround and manages to sit down on the edge. (a) (10
pts) What is the total angular momentum of the
‘merry-go-round-child’ system before and after the child hops on
the the merry-go-round? (b) (10 pts) What is the new angular speed,...

A playground merry-go-round is a large disk of mass 10.0 kg and
radius 2.00 m. The merry-go-round is initially at rest. A physics
teacher pushes on the rim for 24.0 s to accelerate it with constant
angular acceleration until the merry-go-round has completed a total
of 9.00 full revolutions.
a. What is the final angular velocity after 24.0 s?
b. How much total work did the teacher do on the merry-go-round?
(You may assume the axle for the merry-go-round is...

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.
