Not only in circular motion, but in entire kinematics we discuss the case of point objects only. In kinematics we study motion only and not the objects undergoing the motion.
A point object is an object having negligible dimensions compared to the distance travelled by it. For example, a car moving from Delhi to Mumbai can be considered a point object.
Further, when we discuss the concepts in Kinematics, even a large object is dealt considering the entire body to be a single point. This point will be the centre of mass of the body.
If a person is revolving a stone tied to a string, the centre of mass of the stone is taken for determining the length starting from the point about which it revolves.
In dynamics, we have to consider the shape and size of the body also.
the distance between Ahmadabad and vadodara is 100 km.two trains set off simultaneously from Ahmadabad towards vadodara each other.the speed of these trains are 45kmh-1 And 30kmh-1.when will they cross each other?
In what sequence should these chapters be prepared for my exams:-
units and dimensions,kinematics,laws of motion,work power and energy,motion of system of particles and rigid body dynamics,gravitation.

It is better to follow the same pattern as given in NCERT text book

“Q. Velocity of a moving particle is given by v = t2 – 4. Find out:-
(i) Time at which velocity is zero.
(ii) Acceleration at which t= 1s
(iii) What type of motion uniform or non-uniform.”
In the equation, put v=0 to find the time at which velocity equals zero
Differentiate the equation and then put t=1 to find acceleration at t=1s since a = dv/dt
The motion is non uniform as its velocity varies with time.
