A bowling ball has a mass of 7.0 kg, a moment of inertia of 2.8 102 , and a radius of 0.10 m. If it rolls down the lane without slipping at a linear speed of 3.0 m/s, what is its total kinetic energy?
Multiple Choice
A bucket of water with total mass 23 kg is attached to a rope, which in turn is wound around a 0.050-m radius cylinder, with crank, at the top of a well. The moment of inertia of the cylinder and crank is 0.21 kg m2. The bucket is raised to the top of the well and released to fall back into the well. What is the kinetic energy of the cylinder and crank at the instant the bucket is moving with a speed of 6.0 m/s?
Multiple Choice
A gyroscope has a moment of inertia of 0.14 and an initial angular speed of 30 rad/s. Friction in the bearings causes its speed to reduce to zero in 30 s. What is the value of the average frictional torque?
Multiple Choice

Multiple Choice
A rotating flywheel can be used as a method to store energy. If it is required that such a device be able to store up to a maximum of 2.00 106 J when rotating at 400 rad/s, what moment of inertia is required?
Multiple Choice
A rotating flywheel can be used as a method to store energy. If it has 2.0 106 J of kinetic energy when rotating at 400 rad/s, and if a frictional torque of 4.0 N m acts on the system, in what interval of time would the flywheel come to rest?
Multiple Choice
An initially installed flywheel can store 106 J of kinetic energy when rotating at 300 rad/s. It is replaced by another flywheel of the same size but made of a stronger material. If its mass is the same as that of the original, and it is now capable of achieving a rotational speed of 600 rad/s, what maximum energy can be stored?
Multiple Choice
A bus is designed to draw its power from a rotating flywheel that is brought up to its maximum speed (3000 rpm) by an electric motor. The flywheel is a solid cylinder of mass 250 kg and radius 0.500 m (Icylinder = MR2/2). If the bus requires an average power of 10.0 kW, how long will the flywheel rotate?
