Our sun rotates in a circular orbit about the center of the Milky Way galaxy. The radius of the orbit is 2.2 1020 m, and the angular speed of the sun is 1.2 10-15 rad/s.

(a) What is the tangential speed of the sun?
(b) How long (in years) does it take for the sun to make one revolution around the center?

Rotation of a Rigid Body

An electric ceiling fan is rotating about a fixed axis with an initial angular velocity of 0.200 rev/s . The angular acceleration is 0.911 rev/s^2 . Its blades form a circle of diameter 0.720m .

a) Through how many revolutions has the blade turned in the time interval 0.201s?
b) What is the tangential speed v_tan (in m/s) of a point on the tip of the blade at time 0.201s?
c) What is the magnitude of the resultant acceleration (in m/s^2)of a point on the tip of the blade at time 0.201s?
