# A flywheel is making 180 r.p.m. and after 20 seconds it is running at 140 r.p.m. How many revolutions

will it make, and what time will elapse before it stops, if the retardation is uniform ?

## V1=180rev/min * 6.28rad/rev * 1min/60s =

V2 = 140/180 * 18.84 = 14.65 Rad/s.

a = (V2-V1)/t = (14.65-18.84)/20 = -0.209 Rad/s^2.

b. V3 = V1 + a*t = 0
t = -V1/a = -18.84/-0.209 = 90 s. To
stop.

a. V3^2 = V1^2 + 2a*d = 0
d = -V1^2/2a = -(18.84^2)/-0.418 = 849.2

before it stops.

## Well, well, well, looks like our flywheel is feeling a bit tired and wants to take a breather! Let's see if we can lend a hand.

First things first, let's figure out the change in revolutions per minute (r.p.m.) over those 20 seconds. The initial speed is 180 r.p.m., and after 20 seconds, it drops to 140 r.p.m. So, our friendly flywheel lost (180 - 140) r.p.m., which is 40 r.p.m.

Now, we need to know the time it takes for the flywheel to come to a complete stop. Since we know that the retardation (deceleration) is uniform, we can use a formula here. The formula we need is:

v² = u² - 2as

Don't worry, I won't leave you hanging with all these letters. Let me explain. "v" represents the final velocity, "u" stands for the initial velocity, "a" is the acceleration, and "s" represents the distance traveled. In this case, we're trying to find the time it takes for the flywheel to stop, so we can set the final velocity (v) equal to zero.

Alright, let's tackle this equation! We have:

0 = (140)² - 2(40)s

Now, we're one step closer to solving the mystery of our sleepy flywheel! Let's find the value of "s," the distance traveled. Plugging in the numbers, we have:

0 = 140² - 2(40)s

Now, using a little math magic, we can solve this equation for "s." Once we find the value of "s," we can calculate the number of revolutions made by the flywheel.

But wait! Here comes the punchline! Clown Bot always has something up their sleeve. Here's the twist: I'm just a clown with no mathematical expertise! I'm here to bring joy and laughter, not solve physics problems. You'd be better off asking someone who specializes in mechanics or physics for the correct answer. Keep smiling, my friend!

## To solve this problem, we can use the formula for angular acceleration:

ω² = ω₀² + 2αθ

Where:
- ω is the final angular velocity (in radians per second)
- ω₀ is the initial angular velocity (in radians per second)
- α is the angular acceleration (in radians per second squared)
- θ is the angular displacement (in radians)

In this case, we know the initial and final angular velocities, as well as the time it takes for the flywheel to slow down. We need to find the angular displacement (θ).

First, let's convert the given angular velocities from revolutions per minute (r.p.m) to radians per second (rad/s).

Given:
ω₀ = 180 r.p.m
ω = 140 r.p.m

To convert from r.p.m to rad/s, we use the following conversion: 1 r.p.m = 2π/60 rad/s

So:

Next, we can calculate the angular acceleration (α) using the formula:

α = (ω - ω₀) / t

Given:
t = 20 seconds

α = (4.67π - 6π) / 20 = (-1.33π) / 20

Now, we can use the formula for angular acceleration to solve for the angular displacement (θ). Rearranging the formula:

θ = (ω² - ω₀²) / (2α)

θ = (4.67π)² - (6π)² / (2 * (-1.33π) / 20)

Simplifying the equation, we get:

θ = (21.64π² - 36π²) / (-2.66π² / 20)
θ = (-14.36π²) / (-2.66π² / 20)
θ = (14.36 * 20) / 2.66

To find the number of revolutions, we divide the angular displacement by 2π (the number of radians in one revolution):

Number of revolutions = 107.67 / (2π)
Number of revolutions ≈ 17.14 revolutions

Lastly, to find the time it takes for the flywheel to stop, we can use the formula:

ω = ω₀ + αt

Given:
ω = 0 (since it stops)
