(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose a record turntable rotates at constant angular velocity.

a) Does a point on the rim have radial and/or tangential acceleration?

b) If the turntable's angular velocity increases uniformly, does the point have radial and/or tangential acceleration?

c) For which cases would the magnitude of either of the components of linear acceleration change?

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

Basically, I don't understand the concepts, but I think for part b) that it has both radial and tangential acceleration... but I'm not certain
