I have computed angular speed, centripetal acceleration, and torque for a uniform circular motion.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the tangential acceleration?

I am leaning towards tangential a = r(alpha) where alpha is d(omega)/dt.

since I have calculated omega and a = dv/dt - I think its safe to

say that as dt cancels dv = r d(omega) = a tangential?

Any tips?
