I am confused!! Someone help me out??

There was an Assertion/Reason in our last test at coaching. I am still confused on it!

Statement 1: If a disc of radius R2\frac{R}{2} rolls in a circular ring of radius R without slipping then all particles on circumference of disc moves on straight lines. (Ring is fixed)

Statement 2:Angular velocity of disc and the angular velocity of centre of the disc wrt centre of ring are equal.

A) Statement 1 is false and Statement 2 is true.

B) Satement 1 is true and Statement 2 is false.

C) Both are true, and Statement 2 explains Statement 1.

D) Both are true, but Statement 2 does not explains Statement 1.

Thats quite obvious that statement two is wrong as angular velocities being vectors in opposite direction cannot be equal. Can someone explain how statement 1 is correct?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Here is an excellent article on discs rolling inside rings of various sizes. Scroll down to the discussion regarding a disc of half the radius of the ring to find three diverse proofs of statement 1. Sorry for 'being lazy' and just providing a link, but since an explanation is greatly enhanced by the inclusion of diagrams I felt this was the appropriate thing to do.
