1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A horizontal 813 N merry-go-round of radius 1.28 m is started from rest by a constant horizontal force of 66 N applied tangentially to the merry-go-round. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Assume it is a solid cylinder. Find the kinetic energy of the merry-go-round after 2.68 s. 2. Relevant equations Weight = mg F=ma Vf=Vi + at tangential velocity=radius*angular speed Kr = 1/2 (moment of inertia*angular speed^2) moment of inertia = 1/2 Mass*Radius^2 for solid cylinder 3. The attempt at a solution Well, using the constant force applied and the weight of the merry-go-round, I found the tangential acceleration: a = F * g / weight...Then I solved for the tangential velocity with Vf = a * t since it started from rest...then I solved for the angular speed: w = tangential velocity / radius. Then plugged all the numbers I found to solve for moment of inertia and rotational kinetic energy. My final answer is 94.31353 Joules. I entered it in the computer and I got it wrong. I'm not sure where my error is. pls advice. Thanx!
