1.

The speed of a rotating object is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{r}}{\mathbf{\omega }}}$, where r is the radius of the circular path and ω is the angular velocity.

In our case, the angular velocity of the masses is equal.

Therefore, the speed of the masses only depends on the distance of the mass from the axis.
