The front and rear sprockets on a bicycle have radii of 9.00 and 5.10 cm, respectively. The angular speed of the front sprocket is 8.00 rad/s.
(a) Determine the linear speed (in cm/s) of the chain as it moves between the sprockets and
(b) Determine the centripetal acceleration (in cm/s2) of the chain as it passes around the rear sprocket.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 19, 2018, 11:56 pm ad1c9bdddf
