Question

Circular disks are used in automobile clutches and transmissions. When a rotating disk couples to a stationary one through frictional force, the energy from the rotating disk can transfer to the stationary one.
(a) Is the angular speed of the coupled disks (1) greater than, (2) less than, or (3) the same as the angular speed of the original rotating disk? Why?
(b) If a disk rotating at 800 rpm couples to a stationary disk with three times the moment of inertia, what is the angular speed of the combination?
