Answer to Question #64335 in Mechanics | Relativity for stephen
a 60 kg woman stands at the rim of a horizontal turntable having a moment of inertia of 500 kg.m^2 and a radius of 2.00 m. the turntable is initially at rest and is free to rotate about a frictionless, vertical axle through its center. the woman then starts walking around the rim clockwise (as viewed from above the system) at a constant speed of 1.50 m/s relative to earth.
A.) in what direction and with what angular speed does the turntable rotates?
