Homework Help: Planar Kinematics - Relative Motion

  1. Oct 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    http://www.hdimage.org/images/n5gdv4yrqp0wkl11ioae.jpg [Broken]

    2. Relevant equations
    aA = aB + aA/B

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have made a few attempts at this one, and I have gotten absolutely no where. All I have figured out is that the edge of the smaller circle will be the point of rotation, not the center of the object O. Any advice to steer me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
