If two points are on the same disc, but one has a farther radius than the other point, would the point with the bigger radius have a larger linear displacement? See drawing attatched

    |dw:1364440494052:dw| If P has the further radius, will it have a larger linear displacement than Q?

    And which point will under go a greater angular displacement? I would like an explanation of this as well, because it is truly not making sense to me

    yes, the greater radius, the greater displacement in linear equation. But, they both have the same angular displacement. Try as an example, two circles, which rotated to 180 degress. Here angualr displacement is 180 degress in both circles, but linear displacement is different. Linear displacement would be two times of radius, so which circle has greater radius will have greater displacement in linear
