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

A particle has a velocity u = -V0 i + V0 j and position (d,0) at t=0. At any time t its position in polar coordinates is (r,theta) and velocity V = V0 cos theta i + (V0-V0sin theta) j. At t =t, angular velocity of the particle at the origin will be -----------------

2. Relevant equations

angular velocity w = d(theta)/dt

3. The attempt at a solution

actually i didnt understand the question itself. why these two velocities are given.
