## Re: Ch 8_3 help

All the formulas are there given. They all worked for me. I think a few were mislabeled, but just read your question and you'll see which ones.

Question 1:

(Positive)

a=(m*g)/((M/2)+m)

Question 2:

(Negative)

To break it down just multiply across, watch order of operations!

L=((2/5)*M*R

Question 3:

(Negative)

w=(I'w')/I

becomes...

w=(1/I*w)

The ratio is given, but it becomes one over (1/x), multiply it by the w.

Question 4:

(Negative)

(M*%

Hope that helps. See you all in a few hours!

Question 1:

(Positive)

a=(m*g)/((M/2)+m)

Question 2:

(Negative)

Here's the method:

L (angular momentum) = I (moment of inertia) * W (angular velocity).

therefore, I = (2/5) factor that was provided in the question * M (in Kg)* (R^2), R being in meters! and W = rpm given in the question * ((2*pi)/60) = (rads/seconds)

Multiply the I and W and you get your angular momentum:

Here is my problem and answer:

A uniform 2.728 kg sphere (the factor f=2/5 on sheet 1Cool with a 53.37 cm radius spins at 33.42 rpm. What is the angular momentum of the sphere (see sheet 26). Indicate with a negative (positive) sign whether the angular momentum stays the same (changes) in the absence of any torque acting on the sphere.

Ans: -1.087761858

**THANKS MIT!**To break it down just multiply across, watch order of operations!

L=((2/5)*M*R

^{2})*(RPM*((2pi)/60))Question 3:

(Negative)

w=(I'w')/I

becomes...

w=(1/I*w)

The ratio is given, but it becomes one over (1/x), multiply it by the w.

Question 4:

(Negative)

(M*%

*[NOTE: in decimal form]**9.81*L)+(m*9.81)]/(Sin(x)*.45*[NOTE: should be the same number, but it's the second L given]*)Hope that helps. See you all in a few hours!

## #1

I got the formula for #1 from the posts, but I can not figure out how. Can someone post the breakdown of the formulas. I would really like to know.

## simplified solution to all 4 questions

1.) answer is POSITIVE

(m*g)/((M/2)+m)

where m=mass hanging and M=mass of the disk

2.) answer is NEGATIVE

(.4*m*(r^2))/(rpm*(2pi/60))

3.) answer is NEGATIVE

divide angular velocity w given by the value given for the ratio

4.) answer is NEGATIVE

((9.81*m)+(9.81*M*L1*(percent/100)))/(L2*(sin(theta)))

where m=weight held, M=mass of the person, L1=first L given, L2=second L given

hope this helps! any questions, get at me

(m*g)/((M/2)+m)

where m=mass hanging and M=mass of the disk

2.) answer is NEGATIVE

(.4*m*(r^2))/(rpm*(2pi/60))

3.) answer is NEGATIVE

divide angular velocity w given by the value given for the ratio

4.) answer is NEGATIVE

((9.81*m)+(9.81*M*L1*(percent/100)))/(L2*(sin(theta)))

where m=weight held, M=mass of the person, L1=first L given, L2=second L given

hope this helps! any questions, get at me
