Angular veloity, tangential velocity and acceleration ect.. blahh(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

okay so weve gon over it is class but it still confuses me...

some of the forumal's ive remembered are

s=(theta)r (theta)=s/r

anyways im not sue how to find the tangential velocity and angular velocity whats the difference?

do i have to find the displacement (theta) and plug it into the formula V=Wr to find tangental velocity?

plz any help will do im so lost

the kind of questions im dealing with are the steriotypical one like

an airplane is on a 3m string (radius) spinning in a horizontal circular path makes one revolution every .51 seconds (time)

and they want to knwo the tangential velocity and the angular velocity and acceleration?

i think this applies to gravity in our other problems like with a satallite orbiting at4.50x10exp6

and they want to know force and acceleration?
