I have a question. What will happen if you have a long object let’s say a person was lassoed by their feet and spun around by a super strong machine or person. Since the persons head of who is being spun is moving at a much faster tangential velocity then let’s say their feet. If the rope is cut what will happen since every part of the persons body has a different tangential velocity. Will the object start spinning. Will it move in a straight line at the median tangential speed between the head and the feet? Serious question long objects are never really discussed. You can also think of the same scenario with a long piece of wood spinning around in the circle since it obviously has the same angular velocity the molecules of the wood will have a faster tangential velocity farther out. This creates a mess of what will happen in my head maybe someone could better elaborate that understands what I am asking . Thanks.
