Answer #1

A model helicopter has a rotor blade length of 3.0 m from the
motor to the tip, and the blades rotate at a speed of 544 rpm.
rpm means revolutions per minute, where 1 revolution is when the
blades rotate around one full circle.
What is the speed of the tip of the blade in m/s?

A barbell spins around a pivot at its center at
A.
The barbell consists of two small balls, each with mass 450
grams (0.45
kg), at the ends of a very low mass rod of length
d
= 50
cm (0.5
m; the radius of rotation is 0.25
m). The barbell spins clockwise with angular speed 120
radians/s.
We can calculate the angular momentum and kinetic energy of this
object in two different ways, by treating the object as two...
