Homework Help: physics

Posted by marcel on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 10:14pm.

A lazy Susan consists of a heavy plastic disk mounted on a frictionless bearing resting on a vertical shaft through its center. The cylinder has a radius R = 10 cm and mass M = 0.24 kg. A cockroach (mass m = 0.015 kg) is on the lazy Susan, at a distance of 10 cm from the center. Both the cockroach and the lazy Susan are initially at rest. The cock&roach then walks along a circular path concentric with the axis of the lazy Susan at a constant distance of 10 cm from the axis of the shaft. If the speed of the cockroach with respect to the lazy Susan is 0.01 m/s, what is the speed of the cockroach with respect to the room?
