Question: Derive an equation to show the relation between linear and angular accelerations.


 Consider a particle moving along a circular path. Let at any instant of time its initial linear velocity is vi. If the velocity undergoes a change then after a time interval t, its final velocity is vf. Remember linear velocity is along tangent to the circular path. Hence, the linear acceleration of the particle is


This is the required relation.
