4.2 Mobile with circular motion


Mobile with circular motion (constant radius). The angles are measured from the positive X axis, the positive sense is the opposite of clockwise. Also, a positive value of the tangential velocity, mean that the mobile tour in the opposite sense of clockwise.

Name:Name of the mobile.
C:Point that makes the center of rotation. If not specified the origin is the center.
r:Radius of circular motion.
aci:Centripetal acceleration at initial time.
at:Tangential acceleration.
angi:Angle of the initial position.
vi:Initial tangential velocity.
ti:Time at which movements begins.
angf:Angle of the final position.
vf:Final tangential velocity.
acf:Centripetal acceleration at end time.
