Circular Motion question

  1. Sep 24, 2009 #1
    1. Two objects of equal mass are on a turning wheel. Mass 1 is located at the rim of the wheel while mass 2 is located halfway between the rim and the axis of rotation. The wheel is rotating with a non-zero angular acceleration. For each of the following statements select the correct option to complete the statement.

    For a given time, the angle covered by mass 1 is _____ the angle covered by mass 2.
    The tangential acceleration of mass 2 is _____ the tangential acceleration of mass 1.
    The angular acceleration of mass 2 is _____ the angular acceleration of mass 1.
    For a given time, mass 1 travels a distance that is _____ the distance traveled by mass 2.
    The centripetal (radial) acceleration of mass 2 is _____ the centripetal acceleration of mass 1.
    The magnitude of the total acceleration of mass 2 is _____ the total acceleration of mass 1.
    The speed of mass 1 is _____ the speed of mass 2.

    For every blank spot the answer must be "equal to", "greater than" or "less than"

    Please help, I only have one try left and I want to try to get it right.
