Rotating Disk
Printer Friendly Version
If a small object is placed on a rotating disk (like a record player) it will slide off the edge. Suppose you fasten a bar on the disk as shown in the top view, and allow the object to slide from an inside position, along the bar, and off the edge. Which of the paths shown would be most likely?
