- Relevant Equations
- Conceptual ideas.

Answer choices: N2L for Translation, N2L for Rotation, Both, Either1. You are asked to find the angular acceleration of a low-friction pulley with a given force exerted on it.

My solution = N2L for rotation

2. You are asked to find the angular acceleration of a low-friction pulley due to a mass hanging from it by a rope.

My solution = Both

3. You are asked to determine the maximum height of a spinning ball that is thrown upwards.

My solution = Both

4. You are asked to calculate the time it takes a ball to roll down an inclined plane.

My solution = Both

5. You are asked to find the tangential acceleration of a small satellite in a circular orbit that results from it firing its thruster.

My solution = Both

6. You are asked to determine the oribtal period of a small satellite around Earth.

My solution = N2L for translation

Besides the first two, I'm really just guessing based on my intuition. Please help.
