w is omega?
I can't see how it is anything other than just differentiating wrt t
I think the problem is that the unit vectors in cylindric coordinates also vary with time so it is not just v(t)=(2,w,4)
so the directions here are\[\hat r,\hat\theta,\hat z\]I suppose, eh?
do you know the answer?
No, however I just computed v(t)=(2, 2t*w, 4) but I don´t know if is correct or not.
I also have no clue how I could ask wolfram alpha to check that.
I have never seen that formula, so I can't verify it...
I thought this is a "simple" problem.^^
http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/system/files/coursematerial/2012/1115/77/CylCoords.pdf that formula you have seems to be right, though I can't seem to see where they get the extra rho from
The extra rho comes from the derevative of the unit vector e in the direction of phi.
ahh, okay, I had to read that sheet a but closer to get it thanks!
No problem, you´re welcome.
