(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A particle A moves along a circle of radius R= 0.5 m. so that its radius vector [tex]\vec{r}[/tex] relative to point O on th circumference rotates with a constant angular velocity [tex]\omega=0.4 rad/s[/tex]. Find the modulus of velocity and total acceleration.

3. The attempt at a solution

The thing which confuses me is that the modulus of radius vector(relative to point on circumference) keeps changing with time. but [tex]\omega=constant[/tex]

[tex]v=r\omega[/tex]

This means that v changes with time. Am I right?
