A slider moves with uniform velocity on a revolving link of length r with angular velocity ω. The Coriolis acceleration component of a point on the slider relative to a coincident point on the link is equal to

(a) ω parallel to the link

(b) 2ω perpendicular to the link

(c) ω perpendicular to the link

(d) 2ω parallel to the link

This question was posed to me in a job interview.

My question is taken from Four Bar Chain or Quadric Cycle Chain topic in chapter Simple Mechanisms of Machine Kinematics
