Question: a carnival ride consists of two platforms as sketched below...

Question details

A carnival ride consists of two platforms as sketched below. The smaller platform of radius r = 1.5 m rotates at omega2-3 revis with respect to a larger platform of radius R - 5 m, which rotates at omega1 - 5 rev/s with respect to the ground. A rider P of mass m 70 Kg is located along the X axis, at the instant shown. Note that gravity acts. Find the velocity and acceleration of the rider F The reference frames defined in the sketch are as follows: OXYZ is fixed to the ground: Ox.yt,z, is fixed to the larger platform, and Ox2.y2,Z2 is fixed to the smaller Y, U2 ωί 2,21
