(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The slotted homogeneous disk of mass m freely turns about the vertical axis with angular velocity ωi. A small marble of mass 0.05m is placed near the center of the disk. The marble travels outward along the slot due to centrifugal force. Determine the angular velocity of the disk after the marble has left the slot. Neglect the effect of the slot on the moment of inertia of the disk.

2. Relevant equations

H = Iω

I = (1/2) mR^2
