  1. I'm curious to why you decided to use polar coordinates in this problem. Would it be possible for me to solve it in Cartesian coordinates? Why would polar coordinates be beneficial in this case?

    1. I needed a coordinate system in which I could take cross products for each wheel, moreover the fact that the centers of each wheel is fixed makes the polar coordinate system an easy choice. Really the names of the axes are unimportant, but familiarity helps.
