A DVD is spinning at constant velocity. Compare and contrast the accelection of point A at the rim of the DVD and point B halfway between the centre and the rim.

• physics -

The centripetal acceleration r w^2 is proportional to radius. w is the angular velocity (rad/sec), which is the same for both points. There is no tangential acceleration at constant w.
