I see in the description of non-uniform circular motion in a text book, referring to a ferris wheel, that the velocity of an object at the bottom must be twice the velocity at the top, but it is not mathematically shown and it is not immediately obvious to me. Can someone show a simple mathematical demonstration of that?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
