2D Motion : Circular Motion
Summary of equationsDescribing the circle - position vector
R

i
j
are unit vectors along the x and y-axis respectively.The position vector
R
of a particle at P from O, at time t, is given by:As the position vector
R
rotates anti-clockwise, the particle at P traces out a circle of radius
