## Main Question or Discussion Point

**relationship of angular velocy and translational velocity in simple circular motion??**

Like if something is going in a circle of radiues R at speed v with angular velocity w, then w=v/R. Where does this relation come from? I'm having trouble deriving it. Please help!

EDIT:

I think i got it. if period is T, then w=(2pi rad)/T and v=(2piR)/T, solve for T in each, equate them, and you get the relation.
