## Homework Statement

If an air parcel 2000m from a tornado center has a tangential velocity of 10 m/s, what is the resultant tangential velocity if the parcel is 100m from the tornado center.

## Homework Equations

v = rω, where r = radius, and ω = angular velocity

ω = v/r

## The Attempt at a Solution

I understand that the tangential velocity of the air parcel should be much faster as radius drops. But how am I supposed to calculate tangential velocity of it requires the calculation of angular velocity which requires velocity. I'm really lost.
