Question Description:

While sitting in a swivel chair, you push against the floor with your heel to make the chair spin. The 7.0N frictional force is applied at a point 40cm from the chair’s rotation axis, in the direction that causes the greatest angular acceleration. If that angular acceleration is 1.8rad/s^2, what is the total momentum of inertia about the axis of you and the chair?

Answer

25.50
