# Merry-Go-Round

Classical Mechanics Level pending

A merry-go-round has a radius of about $$8 \text{ m}$$. A child sitting on a horse on the outer edge sees his parents, standing still at the entrance, every $$20 \text{ s}$$. If the child's horse could break free of its merry-go-round restraints and continue forward tangentially without accelerating, how fast would it be traveling in $$\text{m}/\text{s}$$?
