What is tangential speed?

What is the formula for tangential speed?

Use a diagram to illustrate different tangential
speeds of two objects with the same angular speed.

Give three examples in which two objects
within the same system have different tangential speeds.

A lady passes through a revolving door
with a tangential speed of 1.8 m/s. If she is 0.80m from the center
of the door, what is the door’s angular speed?

What is tangential acceleration?

What are the two formulas for tangential
acceleration?

A dog on a merry-go-round undergoes
a 1.5 m/s2 linear acceleration. If the merry-go-round’s angular acceleration
is 1.0 rad/s2, how far is the dog from the axis of rotation?

What is centripetal acceleration?

What is the formula for centripetal acceleration?

How can a car be moving at a constant speed
be accelerating?

Draw a diagram of something moving with
rotational motion and show where the tangential acceleration and the centripetal
acceleration are?

What is centrifugal force?

Draw a diagram to show how it and the Loch
Ness monster are related.
