I don't really understand the difference between uniform circular motion and rotational motion. I know that uniform circular motion deals with a body that is orbiting around a central point, with a centripetal force that is causing it to move in a circle. I know that rotational motion uses angles to describe how a body rotates around a central axis. However, aren't these basically equivalent? Each one involves a point revolving around a central axis. Is the real difference that rotation is described in terms of angles, and uniform circular motion is described in terms of linear acceleration and velocities?
