I do not have a Physics or science background. I have a question which is related to physics and I am sure this is the right forum for the answer.
Imagine a big circle with a radius of 10cm and in the middle of the big circle there is a small circle with a radius of 3cm. Inside small circle at the center there is house, small circle can be referred as a boundary of the house and large circle can be referred as a open field around the house.
Question : If person A standing at a edge of small circle and person B standing exact in the same position but on the edge of the open field that is circle B. If they both starts walking (at the same speed) to take a round of the house. The person walking inside will finish faster coz he has to cover less distance….. What if I connect person A and person B with a long STICK and then they start walking simultaneously at same speed. I am sure after few steps there will be misalignment between them and person A will be ahead of person B.
If this is the case, imagine the big circle as a Clock and house a centre of the clock where “Seconds” hand is fixed. The clock hand for “Seconds” is in same position where A and B was standing. Now I replace A and B with 2 pencils fixed on “Seconds” hand in the same position where A and B were standing, pointing the pencil tip on the surface of the clock. Now if the “Seconds” hand starts moving , there is no reason to NOT believe that both circles will be drawn at the same time, in other words person A and person B taking same amount of time to circle the house. I don’t understand why different result for similar scenarios. Am i wrong in assumptions. ??
