Homework Statement



Child P happens to be at a greater distance from the rotation axis than Child M. Which child has the greatest angular velocity?


2. The attempt at a solution

Do they have the same angular velocity, and if they do can you please explain. Thank you.

It really depends a lot on what Child M and Child P are doing. If they are stuck on a disk rotating around the axis at some angular velocity ω, then their angular velocities are both ω, right? The question really has to be more specific than that.

They are both on the same merry-go round so I assume their angular velocities are both ω, is this correct?
