Homework Help: Number of Turns/Circular Motion

  1. Jan 7, 2015 #1

    Having problems with (b)(iiI).

    I've tried using the kinetic energy value = work done and dividing that by torque.

    I've also tried used the other circular motion formulas but haven't had any success.


    Wd = θ x T

    Ek(from b ii) = Wd

    θ = 2278.29/0.6
    = 3797 turns

    I'm asking about a different question here, previous one was in regards to (b) (i), this is (b)(iii).

    Two errors..

    1)Typo.. 2278.29 should be 2778.29
    2) Check the units of angular displacement θ. (Hint: it's not turns)
