1E10.21 - Relative Velocities
To demonstrate the effect radius has on linear velocity on components with identical angular velocity.
Attach ruler and lightbulb circuit to the rotating stand. Connect banana cables to the stand and power variac. Connect variac to wall source. Make sure there is clearance on all sides of the spinning meter stick.
Connect circuit so lightbulbs turn on. Slowly increase voltage to spin up apparatus.
Tangential velocity will increase linearly with an increase in radius for components with angular velocity. V=WR.
