Formula: Non-Uniform Circular Motion
Tangential and angular acceleration for non-uniform circular motion

Tangential acceleration

Acceleration of the body tangential to the circular orbit, that is parallel to the orbital velocity.

Angular acceleration

Angular acceleration is the change in angular velocity \(\omega\) per second. If the angular acceleration is not zero, the body rotates faster and faster on the circular orbit.


Radius of the circular orbit.
