🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Parker & Greco's class at GT.

# Solution: A stationary bicycle wheel of radius R is mounted in the vertical plane on a horizontal low friction axle. Initially the wheel is not rotating. The wheel has mass M, all concentrated in the rim (spokes have negligible mass). A lump of clay with mass m falls and sticks to the outer edge of the wheel at an angle θ as shown in the figure. Just before impact the clay has a speed v. Just after impact, what is the magnitude of the angular velocity of the wheel? 1. mvcosθ / MR 2. mv / (m + M)R 3. mv / MR 4. mvcosθ / (m + M)R 5. mvsinθ / (m + M)R 6. mv / (m + M)R 2 7. Mv / mR 8. Mvsinθ / mR 9. mv / MR 2 10. mvsinθ / MR
