## Main Question or Discussion Point

i am wondering if this is correct...

The angular speed is always a smaller magnitude than the tangential velocity. This is because the tangential velocity has to travel a larger distance during the same amount of time as the angular speed. Tangential velocity is dependent on two things: the extra distance it covers (radius) compared to the central angular speed, and the magnitude of the angular speed.

Sound right or only partially?
