Homework Statement
A flywheel with a radius of 0.300 m starts from rest and accelerates with a constant angular acceleration of 0.600 rad/s^2.
a)Compute the magnitude of the tangential acceleration, the radial acceleration, and the resultant acceleration of a point on its rim at the...
It seems like the approach is not working. So I first used Ac = V^2 / R and so first I did 400000 * 9.8 * .025 and square rooted the answer to get my Velocity then I divided it by .025 to get my omega which should be in rad/s right now, then I divided it by 2pi and divided it by 60 so that my...
I used the conservation of momentum equation, M neutron * Vi,n = M neutron * Vf,n + M boron * Vf,b
Then I would use the KE equation .5(M neutron)(Vi,n)^2 = .5(M neutron)(Vf,n)^2 + .5(M boron)(Vf,b)^2
However, I realized that I would be messing with two unknowns and I have no idea how to...
[SOLVED] Ultracentrifuge Problem
Find the required angular speed (in rpm) of an ultracentrifuge for the radial acceleration of a point .0250 m from the axis to equal 400000g. g=9.8 m/s^2.
A neutron with a mass of 1.67×10^−27 kg and moving with a speed of 45000 m/s makes a head-on collision with a boron nucleus with a mass of 1.66×10^−26 kg. The boron nucleus is originally at rest.
If the collision is perfectly elastic, what fraction of the neutron's original kinetic energy is...
