center. A point on the wheel that is 0.2 m from the center has a tangential speed of 2 m/s.

(a) Determine the tangential speed of a point 0.4 m from the center of the wheel.

(b) Determine the tangential acceleration of the point that is 0.2 m from the center.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, October 30, 2008 at 7:29amUse the .5m radius to calculate the moment of inertia. Use the radius of .4 (or on b of .2) to find tangential speed (w*r)

**Sandhya**, Thursday, October 30, 2008 at 8:27amWhat is the role of Moment of inertia here?

Am I right if I say that the tangential speed is the same 2 m/s & the tangential acceleration zero ?

**bobpursley**, Thursday, October 30, 2008 at 8:29amYou are correct. moment of inertia is not in the picture, acceleration tangential is zero. Good point.
