This tool calculates the tangential acceleration based on your given values of radius and angular velocity.

## How to Use the Tangential Acceleration Calculator

To use this calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the radius in meters (m) into the first input field.
- Enter the angular velocity in radians per second (rad/s) into the second input field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to compute the tangential acceleration.
- The result will be displayed in the “Result” field in meters per second squared (m/s²).

## How It Calculates the Results

The tangential acceleration is calculated using the formula:

*Tangential Acceleration = Radius × (Angular Velocity)²*

This equation implies that the tangential acceleration is directly proportional to the radius and the square of the angular velocity. Therefore, increasing either the radius or the angular velocity will result in a higher tangential acceleration.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that:

- All inputs are provided in the correct units (meters and radians per second).
- The motion is uniform circular motion, meaning the angular velocity is constant.
- No other forces are acting on the object aside from the centripetal force required to maintain circular motion.

For more complex situations involving changing angular velocities or non-uniform motion, more advanced calculations may be required.
