Uniform circular motion?
A straight line is drawn on the surface of a 16-cm-radius turntable from the center to the perimeter. A bug crawls along this line from the center outward as the turntable spins counterclockwise at a constant 45 rpm. Its walking speed relative to the turntable is a steady 2.9 cm/s. Let its initial heading be in the positive x-direction, where the x- and y-directions are fixed relative to the laboratory. As the bug reaches the edge of the turntable (still traveling at 2.9 cm/s radially, relative to the turntable) what are the x and y components of the velocity of the bug?
