Imagine watching friend on merry go round sitting distance R from origin and spinning at ang. velocity omega. She lets go of bag she is holding. What is trajectory of bag in inertial (cartesian) and carousel (polar) frame?
The Attempt at a Solution
I understand the motion in inertail and carousel frame as far as the way it looks but presenting it mathematically is uncertain. Can you give me some direction as to where can I start. It is for graduate course so it is upper level mechanics
