Angular velocity of object after being subjected to torque

  1. [​IMG]

    In particular I am only looking at part c.

    I know the simpler approach is to use energy.

    But I am thinking if i can do an integration of all the torque throughout the process, and hence find the integration of the net angular acceleration and find the resultant change in angular velocity.

    But I have no idea how to do the mathematics. Can anyone show me how the mathematics is done?

    hi serverxeon! :smile:
    τ = Iα …

    torque (of the weight) = 1/3 ML2 d2θ/dt2 :wink:
     
  4. hey thanks for the help.

    sorry but I still don't know how to go on from here!

    could you elaborate a bit further!

    In particular I was looking at using the 'infinitesimal' dτ or dα approach.

    there is no dτ or dα in this situation :confused:

    use torque (of the weight) = 1/3 ML2 d2θ/dt2

    what is the torque? (as a function of θ)​
