Homework Help: momentum

Posted by Rachel on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 1:07am.

A playground merry-go-round has a disk-shaped platform that rotates with negligible friction about a vertical axis. The disk has a mass of 230 kg and a radius of 1.6 m. A 38- kg child rides at the center of the merry-go-round while a playmate sets it turning at 0.15rpm. If the child then walks along a radius to the outer edge of the disk, how fast will the disk be turning (in rpm)?

i am aware that another question has been posted that is exactly the same as this, but when i used that technique, it did not work for me, so i am posting this question again. like i said, i need to get this answer in RPM and NOT rad/s
