In this problem, we looking into the effect of the radius on angular velocity and angular acceleration for the same rotational speed.
Angular velocity is the angle covered in one second:
Two coins rotate on a turntable. The turntable is also speeding up. Coin B is twice as far from the axis as coin A.
1. The angular velocity of coin B is ___ that of coin A.a. Four Times. b. twice c. same as d. half e. 1/4
2. The angular acceleration of coin B is ___ that of coin A. a. Four Times. b. twice c. same as d. half e. 1/4
