Two objects of equal mass are on a turning wheel. Mass 1 is located at the rim of the wheel while mass 2 is located halfway between the rim and the axis of rotation. The wheel is rotating with a non-zero angular acceleration. For each of the following statements select the correct option to complete the statement.

The tangential acceleration of mass 1 is______________the tangential acceleration of mass 2. (equal to?)

The centripetal (radial) acceleration of mass 1 is______________the centripetal acceleration of mass 2. (greater than?)

For a given time, the angle covered by mass 2 is______________the angle covered by mass 1. (equal to?)

The magnitude of the total acceleration of mass 1 is_____________the total acceleration of mass 2. (greater than?)

The moment of inertia of mass 1 about the axis of rotation is_____________the moment of inertia of mass 2 about the axis of rotation . (greater than?)

For a given time, mass 1 travels a distance that is____________the distance traveled by mass 2. (greater than?)

The speed of mass 1 is____________the speed of mass 2. (greater than?)

The angular acceleration of mass 2 is________________the angular acceleration of mass 1. (equal to?)
