1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The magnitude of the acceleration of a point on a spinning wheel is increased by a factor of 4 if:
A) the magnitues of the angular velocity and the angular acceleration are each multiplied by a factor of 4
B) the magnitues of the angular velocity is multuplied by a factor of 4 and the angular acceleration is not changed
C) the magnitues of the angular velocity and the angular acceleration are each multiplied by a factor of 2
D) the magnitues of the angular velocity is multiplied by a factor of 2 and the angular acceleration is not changed
E) the magnitues of the angular velocity is multiplied by a factor of 2 and the magnitudeof the angular acceleration is multiplied by a factor of 4

answer is E

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Okay i tried working back from this and must be doing something wrong,

I start with Aradial = v^2/r = rω^2
and Atangential = rα

I rearange for A = Aradial + Atangentail (as vectors)

which is = r√α^2 + ω^4

subbing in 4 and 2 i get r√32
