Homework Help: college physics

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, March 29, 2010 at 9:50am.

Suppose a 69 kg person stands at the edge of a 7.8 m diameter merry-go-round turntable that is mounted on frictionless bearings and has a moment of inertia of 1600 kg*m^2. The turntable is at rest initially, but when the person begins running at a speed of 3.7 m/s (with respect to the turntable) around its edge, the turntable begins to rotate in the opposite direction. Calculate the angular velocity of the turntable. Please help with step-by-step explanation.
