Four children are sitting on a merry-go-round at different distances from the center (axis of rotation) indicated as A, B, C, and D locations with A being the closest to the center. Choose all the correct statements from the list below.
For every rotation, the distance traveled by a child is 2πR, where R is the distance from the center.
All children have a centripetal acceleration pointing towards the center.
Child A is moving the fastest.
All children have the same period, T.
All children have a different angular velocity based on their distance from the center.
All children have the same angular speed regardless of their distance from the center.
Child D is moving the fastest tangentially since he/she is the farthest from the center.
Since all the points are moving circular path , distance travelled is 2(pi)R.
In order to make an object move in a circular path we apply centripetal force and the bodies will experience centripetal acceleration.
Direction of centripetal acceleration is towards centre of rotation.
C) Wrong Statement
Child A is close to the centre , since radius of rotation is less , velocity of child A will be less.
Velocity (v) = (radius)*(Angular Velocity)
All the children will ...
