Rotating Dots

Introduction:

Imagine dots in a concentric arrangement from the center. If they all start spinning at the same speed, it would’t be much fun. What if the angular speed of the point is itself varies with the distance from the center(r). This means that angular velocity is a function of r. One can obtain some interesting patterns by varying the speed. Do note that even though every individual dot is moving in a circle, they “appear” to be moving in order to form vertices of polygons such as Triangle, Square, Pentagon, Hexagon.
