I was just wondering if anyone has a few minutes if they could check my answers for my homework. I have 7 questions on Rotaional Motion(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)A potter's wheel moves from rest to an angular speed of .20rev/s in 30s. Assuming constant angular acceleration, what is its angular acceleration in rads/s^2

á=.0419 rads/s^2

2)A tire placed on a balencing machine in a service station starts from rest and turns through 4.7 revs in 1.2s before reaching its final angular speed. Assuming that the angular acceleration is constant calculate á.

á=20.497 rads/s^2

3)The Emerald Suite, a revolving resturant at the top of the Space Needle in Seatle, makes a complete turn once every hour. What is the tangential speed of a customer sitting 12.5 m from the resturants center?

Vt=.0218 m/s

4)What is the magnitude of centripetal acceleration of the customer in problem 3

Ac=3.803*10^-5 m/s^2

5)A 515kg Roller Coster rolls down past point A and then up past point B. Using the following diagram answer a and b below.

a)If the vehicle has a speed of 20 m/s at point A, what is the force of the track on the vehicle at this point?

b)What is the maximum speed the vehicle can have at point B for g to hold it on track?

a)F=1030N

b)Vt<=12.165m/s

6)A 12500N car traveling at 50km/h rounds a curve of radius 200m find the following

a)the centripetal acceleration of the car

b)the force that maintains centripetal acceleration

c)the minimum coeffiecent of kinetic friction between the tires and the road so that the car can safely round the curve.

a)Ac=12.5 m/s^2

b)Fc=17201.8 N

c)Coefficient>=1.274

7)A copper Block rests 30cm from the center of a steel turntable. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the turntable is .53. The turntable starts from rest and rotates with a constant angular acceleration of .5 rads/s^2. After what time interval will the block start top slip on the turntable.

Ät=8.3265s

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
