Rotational Dynamics Quiz V1 PSI AP Physics I Name_______________________________ 1. A force of 32 N is applied to a doorknob at an angle of 820 to the line connecting the doorknob to the door hinges (axis of rotation). The doorknob is 0.87 m from the hinges. What is the torque applied to the hinges? 2. A thin rod of length 0.62 m rests on a fulcrum at its midpoint. A mass of 0.16 kg is placed at one end of the rod. Where must a mass of 0.23 kg be placed to balance the rod (α = 0 rad/s2)? 3. Two students are on opposite sides of a merry-go-round of radius 2.3 m and mass 98 kg. One pushes tangent to the outer edge in the clockwise direction with a force of 120 N. The other pushes in the counter-clockwise direction with a force of 96 N. Model the merry-go-round as a disc (I=1/2MR2). What is the angular acceleration of the merry-go-round (magnitude and direction)? 4. Two masses of 2.5 kg and 4.8 kg are attached to either end of a massless rod of length 0.92 m. Compute the moment of inertia for: a) The rod is rotated about its midpoint. b) The rod is rotated at a point 0.11 m from the 2.5 kg mass. c) The rod is rotated about the position of the 4.8 kg mass.
