Beth and Steve are on a carousel. Beth is 7 feet from the center and Steve is right on the edge, 7 feet further from the center than Beth.

  1. Steve's linear speed is only π/3 feet per second. How far is he standing from the center of the carousel?

Hi, Vi, I may misunderstand the question, but if Beth is 7 feet from the center and Steve is seven feet further than Beth, he'd be 14 feet from the center, wouldn't he? His speed wouldn't make a difference. If he were going 1,000 mph, he might fly off, but his distance from the center would be independent of speed (until he is flung away). Bob
