A merry-go-round is a common piece of playground equipment. A 3.0-m-diameter merry-go-round, which can be modeled as a disk with a mass of 300 kg , is spinning at 23 rpm. John runs tangent to the merry-go-round at 4.4 m/s, in the same direction that it is turning, and jumps onto the outer edge. John’s mass is 30 kg.
What is the merry-go-round’s angular velocity, in rpm, after John jumps on?
The merry-go-round’s angular velocity 23.84 RPM
