A centrifuge is a common laboratory instrument that separates components of differing densities in solution. This is accomplished by spinning a sample around in a circle with a large angular speed. Suppose that after a centrifuge in a medical laboratory is turned off, it ...

A popular carnival ride consists of a large, round room that rotates fast enough that any person standing against the wall will be stuck there, even as the floor is dropped away from their feet. The coefficient of static friction between the person and the wall is μs , ...

A dentist causes the bit of a high-speed drill to accelerate from an angular speed of 1.20 104 rad/s to an angular speed of 3.14 104 rad/s. In the process, the bit turns through 1.92 104 rad. Assuming a constant angular acceleration, how long would it take the bit to reach its...

A wheel, starting from rest, has a constant angular acceleration of 1.8 rad/s2. In a 3.7-s interval, it turns through an angle of 52 rad. How long has the wheel been in motion at the start of this 3.7-s interval?
