4.3 Mobile with polar circular motion

m_polar

Mobile with circular motion described by polar coordinates. The angles are measured from the X axis, the positive sense is the opposite of clockwise. Also, a positive value to angular velocity, mean that the mobile tour in the opposite sense of clockwise. And a positive value to radial velocity, indicates that the mobile moves away from the center of rotation.
