Junior throws his mashed potatos onto his mothers lazy susan, which has a moment of inertia of I. If the potatoes have a mass m, a horizontal velocity of v and hit at a distance d from the center shown. What is the final angular velocity of the turable and potatoes. A lazy susan turntable used on a dining table. Take it to be frictionless.
