1.- A car is going around a racetrack at constant speed. The curves around the track have different radii. In which turn is the magnitude of the car's acceleration the greatest?
a. It is the greatest in the turn with the greatest radius.
b. It is the greatest in the turn with the smallest radius.
c. The acceleration is zero everywhere because of the constant speed.
d. More information is needed to determine the answer.
3.- A ventilation fan has blades 0.25 m long rotating at 20 rpm. What is the centripetal acceleration of a point on the outer tip of a blade?
4.- A grindstone spinning at the rate of 8.3 rev/s has what approximate angular speed?
a. 3.2 rad/s
b. 26 rad/s
c. 52 rad/s
d. 81 rad/s
5.- A 0.12-m-radius grinding wheel takes 5.5 s to speed up from 2.0 rad/s to 11.0 rad/s. What is the wheel's average angular acceleration?
7.- A Ferris wheel, rotating initially at an angular speed of 0.50 rad/s, accelerates over a 7.0-s interval at a rate of 0.040 rad/s2. What is its angular speed after this 7-s interval?
