## Homework Statement

if a disk is rotating on another stationary disk and someone standing on the stationary disk stops it what will the final angular velocity of both the disks be?

the catch is that both the disks are not co axial. assume ω angular velocity, M mass of big disk.m mass of small disk.R radius of larger disk,R/2 radius of small disk.I

_{1}=moment of inertia of big disk with respect to axis 1,I

_{2}=moment of inertia of small disk with respect to axis 2

## Homework Equations

conservation of angular momentum

## The Attempt at a Solution

what is the angular momentum of the small disk with respect to the axis of the larger disk?

its definitely not I

_{2}ω since it would be angular momentum about axis 2.please help
