3From linear to rotational motionStefan BracherLinear motionMovement in x, y or z directionQuantified by:Position x [m], speed v [m/s], acceleration a [m/s2]Influenced by:Force F [N]Rotational motionRotation around the x, y or z axisQuantified by:Position θ [rad], speed ω [rad/s], acceleration α [rad/s2]Influenced by:Torque τ [N*m](Torque = the ability of a force to turn an object)Note: Do not give up just because of the greek characters. We use greek characters for rotational things just tomake it look fancy (and because we run out of letters in the latin alphabet)Angular MomentumAlso: See video on rotational motion:
