The Kit Carson County Carousek makes 3 revolutions per minute.
A.) Find the linear velocity in feet per second of someone riding a horse that is 22.5 feet from the center.
B.) The linear velocity of the person on the inside of the carousel is 3.1 feet per second. How far is the person from the center of the carousel?
C.) How much faster is the rider on the outside going than the rider on the inside?

w=3*2PI/60 rad/sec
velocity= radius*w
same equation
subtract the two velocities...
