I'm learning about angular velocity, momentum, etc. and how all the equations are parallel to linear equations such as velocity or momentum. However, I'm having trouble comparing angular acceleration to linear acceleration.Looking at each equation, they are not as similar as some of the other equations are:Anglular acceleration = velocity squared / radiusLinear acceleration = force/ massI would think angular acceleration would take torque into consideration. How is Vsquared similar in relation to force, and how is radius's relation to Vsquared match the relationship between mass and force? I suppose the root of this misunderstanding is how I'm thinking of angular acceleration, which is only an vector representing an axis's direction, and having a magnitude equal to the number of radians rotated per second.I also am confused on what exactly 'V' (tangential velocity) represents and how it's used. Is it a vector whose magnitude is equal to the number of radians any point on a polygon should rotate? What is the explanation?
