That makes sense now. Thanks haruspex. About the second part of 1st equation: I think they are multiplying the perpendicular component of angular acceleration with radius vector giving dv/dt.haruspex said:The tangential acceleration is the component of the acceleration that is parallel to the velocity.

True, thanks a lot for the link though!PeroK said:Everything is online these days:

Tangential acceleration is the rate of change of tangential velocity in circular motion. It is the component of acceleration that is parallel to the direction of motion and is responsible for the change in speed of an object moving in a circular path.
Tangential acceleration can be calculated using the formula at = rα, where a is the tangential acceleration, r is the radius of the circular path, and α is the angular acceleration.
Normal acceleration is the component of acceleration that is perpendicular to the direction of motion in circular motion. It is responsible for the change in direction of an object moving in a circular path.
Normal acceleration and tangential acceleration are always perpendicular to each other, and together they make up the total acceleration of an object in circular motion. As tangential acceleration increases, normal acceleration decreases, and vice versa.
Yes, an object can have a constant speed in circular motion while still experiencing tangential and normal acceleration. This is because acceleration is a vector quantity and can change in direction even if the magnitude remains constant.
