Three particles, each of mass 3.0 kg, are fastened to each other and to a rotation axis by three massless strings, each 0.360 m long, as shown in the Figure. The combination rotates around the rotation axis with an angular velocity of 19.0 rad/s in such a way that the particles remain in a straight line. What is the rotational inertia of the system?
What is the magnitude of the total angular momentum of the three masses?
