A cylinder is rotating with angular speed

-- take some points along radius and find if they have same angular speed ?

---- same tangential speed ?

------ same tangential acceleration ?

I think that they will have will same angular speed becuase all the points on the cylinder are moving with same speed.

But tangential speed would be different because it is the speed which is calculated at a specific point and each point will have different direction while moving.

and for tangential acceleration .. each point would have different.

Tell me if I am doing it right .

Thanks
