You are on the edge of a merry-go-round that has a moment of Inertia IM, radius R, and an initial angular speed of ωo spinning in the cw direction. You may take your mass as Mu. Beside you is a pile of 5 snowballs each of mass ms. You will throw each of these tangentially (such that your location on the Merry-GoRound is their point of closest approach during their trajectories) with speed v in the direction needed to speed up the Merry-Go-Round. What is the angular speed of the Merry-goround after throwing all 5 snowballs?
