## Homework Statement

A solid disk of radius 5m and mass 8 kg rotates clockwise at 1.5 rad/s. Above this disk is a hoop of radius 2.5 m and mass 8 kg , rotating counterclockwise at 3 rad/s. The hoop drops down onto the disk, and friction causes them to rotate together. Find the final velocity. Find the kinetic energy lost in this collision.

## Homework Equations

ωf=ωi+αt and θf=θi+ωit+(1/2)αt2 I=1/2 Mr^2 I=Mr^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think that by starting to find the acceleration of each of the disk i will be able to find the velocity and times of each one of them.
