Please can you help me understand the break down of this equation, its proabably easy

  1. Jan 31, 2012 #1
    ok, if angual velocity ω = linear velocity v / radius r

    therefore ω=v/r

    but what if i have ω^2 ( to the power of 2 )

    does ω^2=v^2/r^2

    or does it eqaul ω^2=(v/r)^2

    many thanks, this is really bugging me and preventing me solve a problem since im not in class

    it's same. moreover, if you are getting confused check it dimensionally.

    Also this has nothing to do with "Linear and Abstract Algebra" so I am moving it to "General Math".
