Homework Help: Non uniform circular motion

  1. Feb 16, 2010 #1
    1. we can derive that v=r[tex]\omega[/tex] for uniform circular motion as v=2[tex]\pi[/tex]r/T and [tex]\omega[/tex]=2[tex]\pi[/tex]/T but does the relation v=r[tex]\omega[/tex] also hold for non uniform circular motion where [tex]\omega[/tex] is a variable quantity

    Sure, v =wr is the conversion from angular speed to tangential speed . v will also be variable if w is variable (accelerated motion).
