Conservation of Angular Momentum
& watch your fingers with the bicycle wheel
Conservation of angular momentum
Torque (analogous to F=ma for linear motion)
Moment of Inertia- (analogous to mass)
Rotational Kinetic Energy
Part 1 : Angular Momentum & Rotational KE
Initial I large, final I small …which w is larger?
Look at the direction the wheel is spinning … which
way will you spin when you flip it over? What is the final
L of you and the platform? What is the final L of the wheel?
Can you spin in the other direction? How?
Part 3. Conservation of L in Collision
To find out you’ll also need to measure the moment of inertias
before and after the collision. Accelerate the before and after
configurations and solve for the moment of inertias.
