Answer ( 1 )

  1. A) Which of the following sets of vectors best describes the velocity, acceleration, and net force acting on the cylinder at the point indicated in the diagram?  

    => e

    B) Let R be the distance between the cylinder and the center of the turntable. Now assume that the cylinder is moved to a new location R/2 from the center of the turntable. Which of the following statements accurately describe the motion of the cylinder at the new location?

    => the speed of the cylinder has decreased

    the magnitude of the acceleration of the cylinder has decreased
