Must show work to receive credit.
C-1 16 points
Can solve this problem in angle units of rev, rev/s, and rev/s2.
Conversion from rev to rad is OK but unnecessary.

The bug: l  r  p  (0.1)(0.003)( 2.0) k  6.0 10 4 k kg m 2 / s
(y directed velocity does not contribute to the cross product.)
OK to consider instantaneous 0 = vtang/r of bug before landing and then L0 = Ibug 0.
