# Problem: A thin uniform cylindrical turntable of radius 3 m and mass 25 kg rotates in a horizontal plane with an initial angular speed of 7.9 rad/s. The turntable bearing is frictionless. A clump of clay of mass 12 kg is dropped onto the turntable and sticks at a point 1.1 m from the point of rotation. Find the angular speed of the clay and turntable.
