Homework Help: Classical mechanics problem

  1. Sep 6, 2010 #1
    Ok so I have this circular merry go round and its rotating with a constant angular velocity [tex] \omega [/tex]. There is a point A on the merry go round moving radially outward with a constant velocity V. Let the center of the circular merry go round be O. I want to find the acceleration of point A with respect to the inertial frame O.

    anyone have any ideas?
