              Physics 261: Personal Response System Questions

(A) What is ¾ of a full rotation, in terms of radians?

(B) A ladybug sits at the outer edge of a rotating merry-go-round, and a
    gentleman bug sits halfway between her and the axis of rotation. The
    gentleman bug’s angular speed is

   1.   half the ladybug’s.
   2.   the same as the ladybug’s.
   3.   twice the ladybug’s.
   4.   impossible to determine with
        information given.

(C) Same situation as above, but
    compare linear speed. The gentleman bug’s linear speed is …?


(D) As viewed from above, a turntable is observed to rotate counterclockwise.
    The angular velocity vector is

   1.   tangential to the rim of the turntable.
   2.   out of the plane of the turntable.
   3.   into the plane of the turntable.
   4.   in the counterclockwise direction.


(E) If an object undergoes uniform circular motion (moves in a circle with a
     constant speed)

   1. the net force on the object is zero.
   2. the net force on the object is non-zero, and points in the direction of the
      velocity vector .
   3. the net force on the object is non-zero, and points towards the center of
      the circle.
   4. the net force on the object is non-zero, and points in the direction of the
      angular velocity vector.
