You are here

$KE = 5 \times 0^{16} \textrm{J}$
$L = 3 \times 10^{20} \textrm{kgm}^2\textrm{/s}$

Note: At 3:23 I mention correctly that the angular velocity is $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$, whereas at 3:46 I incorrectly wrote $3.333 \times 10^{-11}$. My calculations were nevertheless done using $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$, so the results are correct. Where you hear $3.333 \times 10^{-11}$, please think: $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$.

Is the answer not 453.6926 J or 5*10^2 J, I copied the exact calculations from your final answer of part A (3:49) and did not get 5*10^16 J.

And I also you changed the angular velocity from 3.333*10^-4 to 3.333*10^-11 when doing the calculations to work out the KE

Hello student from thesoutportschool, thank you for spotting the error. At 3:23 I mention correctly that the angular velocity is $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$, whereas at 3:46 I incorrectly wrote $3.333 \times 10^{-11}$. My calculations were nevertheless done using $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$, so the results are correct. I'll put a note above the video to use $3.333 \times 10^{-4}$ for the angular velocity.

All the best,
Mr. Dychko
