There is a spinning disc. Object A sits R distance from center and object B sits R/2 distance away. VB=piR/T and VA=2piR/T
Find the magnitude of the acceleration of object B. Assume that the cylinder makes one complete turn in a period of time .
The Attempt at a Solution
The answer is a=(2pi2R)/T2 .
From using centripital acceleration=v2/R , i got
There is a coefficient of 2 that I am missing in my answer from the correct solution, but I have double checked. Am I using the wrong formula here? where did the 2 come from in the answer?
