given a package on a conveyor belt running at a constant veloctiy of 1.5m/s, 1.8m away from the origin. the conveyor belt is rotating origin as a pivot at angular velocity 6 rad/s. it rotates on z axis. calculate the relative velocity of the package from origin (Vp/0) and V absolute. calculate also the relative acceleration (A p/0) and absolute accelearation

2. Relevant equations

Vp = Vo + Vp/o...<---Vo = 0 since origin, thus Vp/0 = Vp..

Vp = Vo + (w x r)...(angular velocity x distance)..(but angular velocity of conveyor belt is not given)..

what is absolute velocity

3. The attempt at a solution

usually i use the formula Vp = w x r (angular velocity cross product r (distance)

i am confused of how and which formula to use to solve this question. please help me
