In this problem, we are interpreting the characteristics of various quantities associated with uniform circular motion.

Uniform circular motion refers to motion in a circle at a constant speed.

Part A.

Angular accelration:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\alpha }}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{\omega }}{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{t}}}$

Tangential acceleration:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{a}}}_{{\mathbf{t}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{r}}{\mathbf{\alpha }}}$ where r is the radius and α is the angular acceleration.

$\overline{){{\mathbf{a}}}_{{\mathbf{c}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{v}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{r}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{r}}{{\mathbf{\omega }}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$ where v is the tangential velocity and ω is the angular velocity.
