Problem 10.2: Determine angular and tangential speed and velocity
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A child sits on a merry-go-round at the position marked by the red circle (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Restart.
- What is her average speed and instantaneous velocity?
- What is her angular speed and angular velocity?
For the instantaneous velocity and angular velocity, you should give a value for the speed and a description of the velocity's direction for any point in time.
