1. ## Graph Question

Can anyone provide the answer for the following problem?

L and ω are related by the equation

L = mR2ω

where all the other quantities in the equation are constant.

What is the gradient of a graph in which L is plotted against ω?

Thanks

The gradient of $L$ is $\frac{\mathrm{d}L}{\mathrm{d}\omega}=\frac{\mathrm {d}}{\mathrm{d}\omega}\left( mr^2\omega\right)=\ldots$ (remember that neither $m$ nor $r$ depends on $\omega$)
