- Summary:
- Determining the future position of an object undergoing uniform circular motion

Hello,

Apologies if this is in the wrong section, it's related to circles so I figured Geometry was the best place. I found a very good example online that explains how to determine a future position of an object undergoing uniform circular motion:

However I am confused as to how a different starting position would affect the calculations above? The example has a start point of (0.175i + 0j). However, what if the particle started at 0.147i + 0.095j (first pink dot above the positive x-axis)? Can anyone please explain how this would alter the calculation? Clearly

*(Note that they made a mistake by writing 0.095j as 0.95j on the diagram).*However I am confused as to how a different starting position would affect the calculations above?

**A**,**omega**and**t**are the same, so how is the calculation different?
