(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A 1.8 kg, 20 cm diameter turntable rotates at 160 rpm on frictionless bearings. Two 500 g blocks fall from above, hit the turntable simultaneously at opposite ends of a diagonal, and stick. What is the turntable's angular velocity, in rpm, just after this event?

2. Angular momentum(L)=angular velocity(w)*moment of inertia(I)

3. I'm confused as to whether or not to appraoch this as a conservation of momentum problem or some other way. I think I would need to know the velocities of the blocks before they hit to to this.
