Physics help angular velocity and inertia

  1. Oct 15, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    2 questions I really need help with
    1) a 20g weight is attached to one free end of a 2.5m length of string, other end is attached to the ceiling. The weight is pulled to one side And released when the angle between the verticle and the string is 53.1 degrees. What is the angular velocity ofthe weight when the angular acceleration is zero

    2) a uniform disc of radius 0.25m is attached to a thread of mass of 5kg. The disc has mass 10kg calculate the moment of inertia of the disc. Thanks very much any help greatly appreciated

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    These both can easily be solved with the appropriate equations.
