A large wooden wheel of radius R and the moment of inertia I is mounted on an axle so as to rotate freely. A bullet of mass m and speed v is shot tangential to the wheel and strike its edge, lodging in the wheel’s rim. If the wheel was originally at rest, what is its rotation ...

The rim of the London Eye (a 135m diameter ferris wheel) moves 26 cm/sec, slow enough for passengers to safely get on the wheel from the platform (2 meters above ground level) without stopping the wheel at the bottom of its rotation. What's the height at the bottom of the ...

A toy train track is mounted on a large wheel that is free to turn with negligible friction about a vertical axis (see the figure). A toy train of mass m = 2.5 kg is placed on the track and, with the system initially at rest, the electrical power is turned on. The train ...
