Physics 261: Personal Response System Questions

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

3               3            3            3
4               2             4             2

(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

2.   the same as 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.
