Unformatted text preview: 2/3 the radius of the larger disk. Calculate the ratio of the tangential velocity of a point on the rim of disk A to the tangential velocity of a point on the rim of disk B. 4. If the two disks in problem 4 have an angular velocity of , calculate the ratio of the kinetic energy of disk A to the kinetic energy of disk B. Assume that each disk has mass M. v v A B...
