Problem 5PE

With the aid of a string, a gyroscope is accelerated from rest to 32 rad/s in 0.40 s.

(a) What is its angular acceleration in rad/s2 ?

(b) How many revolutions does it go through in the process?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 5CQ

Step 1 of 6

In the given problem, we need to calculate the angular acceleration and the total angular displacements or the number of revolutions disc does through the process in a gyroscope.

The gyroscope is a device, which consists a disc mounted on it. In such a way that, disc spin rapidly about an axis which is free to move in any direction. Since the orientation of the axis is not affected by tilting of the mounting, so this device is used to sustain a reference level for navigation systems.
