The front and rear sprockets on a bicycle have radii of 9.00 and 5.10 cm, respectively. The angular speed of the front sprocket is 8.60 rad/s.
(a) Determine the linear speed (in cm/s) of the chain as it moves between the sprockets. cm/s (b) Determine the centripetal acceleration (in cm/s2) of the chain as it passes around the rear sprocket. cm/s2

Shawonna23, can you show what reasoning you already made to solve these questions ? How do you understand the questions, what formula's do you intend to use, what values you think you should use, ....
