Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Cat on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 8:33pm.

When some stars use up their fuel, they undergo a catastrophic explosion called a supernova. This explosion blows much or all of a star's mass outward, in the form of a rapidly expanding spherical shell. As a simple model of the supernova process, assume that the star is a solid sphere of radius R that is initially rotating at 1.5 revolutions per day. After the star explodes, find the angular velocity, in revolutions per day, of the expanding supernova shell when its radius is 3.7R. Assume that all of the star's original mass is contained in the shell.
