A solid cylinder of mass 20 kg rotates about its axis with angular speed 100 rad s-1. The radius of the cylinder is 0.25 m. What is the kinetic energy associated with the rotation of the cylinder? What is the magnitude of angular momentum of the cylinder about its axis?
We need to find Kinetic energy of the rotating cylinder
We know that, Rotational kinetic energy,
KE = 1/2I ω2
I is moment of inertia
ω is angular velocity
Mass of cylinder, M = 20 kg
Radius of cylinder, R = .25 m = 1/4 m
Angular speed of cylinder, ω = 100 rad s-1
Moment of inertia of a solid cylinder, I = 1/2 MR2
I.e. I = 1/2 × 20 × (1/4)2
= 5/8 kg m2
∴ KE = 1/2 I ω2
= 5/16 (100)2
= 3125 J
= 3.125 kJ
We need to find angular momentum of rotating cylinder about its axis.
Angular momentum, L = I ω
We know that,
Moment of inertia of cylinder, I = 5/8 kg m2
Angular speed of cylinder, ω =100 rad s-1
∴ Angular momentum, L = 5/8 × 100
= 62.5 kg m s-1
= 62.5 J s

A bullet of mass 10 g and speed 500 m/s is fired into a door and gets embedded exactly at the centre of the door. The door is 1.0 m wide and weighs 12 kg. It is hinged at one end and rotates about a vertical axis practically without friction. Find the angular speed of the door just after the bullet embeds into it.NCERT - Physics Part-I
A man stands on a rotating platform, with his arms stretched horizontally holding a 5 kg weight in each hand. The angular speed of the platform is 30 revolutions per minute. The man then brings his arms close to his body with the distance of each weight from the axis changing from 90cm to 20cm. The moment of inertia of the man together with the platform may be taken to be constant and equal to 7.6 kg m2.
A. What is his new angular speed? (Neglect friction.)
B. Is kinetic energy conserved in the process? If not, from where does the change come about?NCERT - Physics Part-I
As shown in Fig.7.40, the two sides of a step ladder BA and CA are 1.6 m long and hinged at A. A rope DE, 0.5 m is tied half way up. A weight 40 kg is suspended from a point F, 1.2 m from B along the ladder BA. Assuming the floor to be frictionless and neglecting the weight of the ladder, find the tension in the rope and forces exerted by the floor on the ladder. (Take g = 9.8 m/s2)
(Hint: Consider the equilibrium of each side of the ladder separately.)

A. A child stands at the centre of a turntable with his two arms outstretched. The turntable is set rotating with an angular speed of 40 rev/min. How much is the angular speed of the child if he folds his hands back and thereby reduces his moment of inertia to 2/5 times the initial value? Assume that the turntable rotates without friction.
B. Show that the child’s new kinetic energy of rotation is more than the initial for this increase in kinetic energy?NCERT - Physics Part-I

A wheel in uniform motion about an axis passing through its centre and perpendicular to its plane is considered to be in mechanical (translational plus rotational) equilibrium because no net external force or torque is required to sustain its motion. However, the particles that constitute the wheel do experience a centripetal acceleration directed towards the centre. How do you reconcile this fact with the wheel being in equilibrium? How would you set a half-wheel into uniform motion about an axis passing through the centre of mass of the wheel and perpendicular to its plane? Will you require external forces to sustain the motion?Physics - Exemplar
Two discs of moments of inertia I1 and I2 about their respective axes (normal to the disc and passing through the centre), and rotating with angular speed ω1 and ω2 are brought into contact face to face with their axes of rotation coincident.
A. Does the law of conservation of angular momentum apply to the situation? why?
B. Find the angular speed of the two-disc system.
C. Calculate the loss in kinetic energy of the system in the process.
D. Account for this loss.

B. h = R (ii) Sphere spins clockwise, loses energy by friction.
