Concept

Problem: The wheel in the figure is rolling to the right without slipping.Rank in order, from fastest to slowest, the speeds of the points labeled 1 through 5.Rank items from fastest to slowest. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.

FREE Expert Solution

Rotational speed,

V=rω

The speed at those points will be the sum of the speed at those points (Rω) and speed of the wheel (rω).

The speed of the wheel is positive to the right.

At point 1, the two speeds add up to the right. 

Speed = rω + Rω
