A flywheel rotates with constant angular velocity. Does a point on its rim have a tangential acceleration? A radial acceleration? Are these accelerations constant in magnitude? In direction? In each case give your reasoning.

Solution 6DQ The flywheel has constant angular velocity. Therefore, its angular acceleration will be zero. If the diameter of the flywheel is r, its tangential acceleration is numerically given as a = t, where is angular acceleration. But since for constant angular velocity, angular acceleration is zero, hence the tangential acceleration will also be zero. The direction of the tangential velocity of a point is always changing....
