A disc of radius r is spinning about its center in the horizontal plane with a constant angular speed w (omega). A bug walks along the radius of the spinning disc traveling from the center of the disc toward the edge. The bug maintains a constant speed v relative to the disc. (In other words, if the disc were not spinning, the bug would travel at a speed v relative to the disc and ground.) What is the vector acceleration and (if not already given) the magnitude of the acceleration of the bug relative to the ground in terms of the three variables: r, omega, v. Show all work in the derivation.
[I used calculus to solve this.]
If someone could lead me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.
