please help me solve this question.

Mass M = 28.1 kg

radius r = 1.58 m

R-Inertia = 433 Kg.m2

mass of rock = 670g = .67 kg (tangent to merry-go-round)

speed of rock = 7.78 m.s

now is the angular speed ω of merry-go-round = ?

we know ω = L/Inertia or (m.r.v)/inertia.

Now what is velocity of the system? is it 7.78?

if yes then

ω = [(28.1+.67)*1.58*7.78)]/433 ≈ 0.81674 rad/sec

is linear speed of the girl = 0.816748*r
