The arm has length L and rotates in the anti-clockwise direction. The system is designed such that the platform always remains horizontal as shown in the figure. This type of the motion of the platform is called as the curvilinear translation (illustrated in Figure 3-6 in the textbook). A person P is starts walking on the platform.
