Physics - Rotational Motion
posted by Robert .
(#1.) A top starting from 40 rad/s takes 200 rad to stop. What is its rotational acceleration? (a constant)
(#2.) A stationary 100 Kg circular object (r= 0.20 m) is on a 35 degree incline. The coefficient of rolling friction between the block and the incline is 0.01. If it moves for 5 seconds, what is the angular displacement of the object at this time? (disregard torque)
For #1, I did: wf^2 = wi^2 + 2a(change in radians) and got a=4 radians/second^2. Is this right?
(I don't know how to do #2)
Yes on 1.
On 2, I don't know what a circular object is (sphere, cylinder, hoop). Each of those has a differing moment of inertial, and absorbs rolling friction differently.
The 2d drawing that goes with #2 shows a circle at the top of an incline. \
a circle could be a hoop,or a thin wheel.
Whichever one is the easiest to analyze.
