Unformatted text preview: thickness of the ring is r, the average distance of the ring from the center of Saturn is R, and the average velocity of the ring is v, show that vout vin rv / R if the ring is solid. Here, vout is the speed of the outermost portion of the ring, vin is the speed of the innermost portion, and v is the average velocity of the ring. (b) If, however, the ring is composed of many small chunks, show that Vout vin rv /2R. (Assume that r R.) Solution:...
