What we found:


A student is asked to design an experiment to determine the change in angular momentum of a disk that rotates about its center and the product of the average torque applied to the disk and the time interval in which the torque is exerted. A net force is applied tangentially to the surface of the disk. The rotational inertia of the disk about its center is I = MR”. Which two of the following quantities should the student measure to determine the change in angular momentum of the disk after 10 s? Select two answers.

A system consists of two small disks, of masses m and 2m, attached to ends of a rod of negligible mass of length 3x. The rod is free to turn about a vertical axis through point P. The first mass, m, is located x away from point P, and therefore the other mass, of 2m, is 2x from point P. The two disks rest on a rough horizontal surface; the coefficient of friction between the disks and the surface is . At time t = 0, the rod has an initial counterclockwise angular velocity ωi about P. The system is gradually brought to rest by friction. Derive an expressions for the following quantities in terms of µ, m, x, g, and ωi.
