1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A small metal cylinder rests on a circular turntable that is rotating at a constant rate. Let R be the distance between the cylinder and the center of the turntable. Now assume that the cylinder is moved to a new location R/2 from the center of the turntable. Which of the following statements accurately describe the motion of the cylinder at the new location? A The speed of the cylinder has decreased. B The speed of the cylinder has increased. C The magnitude of the acceleration of the cylinder has decreased. D The magnitude of the acceleration of the cylinder has increased. E The speed and the acceleration of the cylinder have not changed. There could be more than one answers. 2. Relevant equations v^2/R=magnitude 3. The attempt at a solution So I tried out this experiment. It moves at a constant motion around the center of the mass and the speed is constant. Since it says "R/2" I decresaed the radius and the speed increases. So I think B is one of the answers. What else should I be aware of?
