Suppose three masses are arranged as shown, connected by a rodless mass. (2 kg)-------(6 kg)--------(4 kg) 2m 3m a) If this object is free to rotate in space, about what point will it spin? b) A small mass (m=0.1 kg) drops vertically onto the2 kg mass traveling 100 m/s and ...

**college physics**

an atwood machine is constructed by mounting a well-lubricated pulley (not necessarily a ring/disc), whose radius is 6.00cm on an axle and passing a rope over the pulley. Each end of the rope is attached to a different mass of 3.0 kg and 2.0kg so they both hang vertically. ...

**Physics *(URGENT)**

Use a sentence to describe how the spacing of the dots for the accelerated motion is different from the spacing of the dots you would expect for uniform motion. In accelerated motion the dots are spaced further apart as the time increases. Would my answer be correct? If not ...

Some special vehicles have spinning disks (flywheels) to store energy while they roll downhill. They use that stored energy to lift themselves uphill later on. Their flywheels have relatively small rotational masses but spin at enormous angular speeds. How would a flywheel’s ...
