A disk with a mass of 18 kg, a diameter of 50 cm, and a thickness of 8 cm is mounted on a rough horizontal axle as shown on the left in the figure. (There is a friction force between the axle and the disk.) The disk is initially at rest. A constant force, F = 70 N,is applied to the edge of the disk at an angle of 37°, as shown on the right in the figure. After 2.0 s, the force is reduced to F = 27 N,and the disk spins with a constant angular velocity.
How do I find the angular velocity and kinetic energy after 2 seconds?
