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
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
Draw a diagram of something moving with
rotational motion and show where the tangential acceleration and the centripetal
What is centrifugal force?
Draw a diagram to show how it and the Loch
Ness monster are related.
