## Statement

difficulty A body describes a uniform circular motion with a 3 m radius. What is its position vector when its angle is 30º?

## Solution

Data

R = 3 m
φ = 30º = 1/6 π rad

Resolution

Knowing that the position vector of a body in a uniform circular motion (u.c.m.) is obtained from the following expression:

$\stackrel{\to }{r}=x·\stackrel{\to }{i}+y·\stackrel{\to }{j}=R·\mathrm{cos}\left(\phi \right)·\stackrel{\to }{i}+R·\mathrm{sin}\left(\phi \right)·\stackrel{\to }{j}$

We only need to substitute the data that we know in this equation:
