The further out - the faster (this goes back to the record cartoon) s r θ • Rotational variables and linear variables are related. • From the definition of the radian sr T ds v dt = d r dt θ = T vr
Where is a R greatest on a merry-go-round? AB

Where is a R greatest on a merry-go-round? 2 T R v a r = T - for tangential T but vr = ω 2 R ar ω ⇒= furthest out
s r θ • Rotational variables and linear variables are related. T vr T T dv a dt = d r dt ω = T ar ⇒= α Connections

Remember: tangential and radial (centripetal) acceleration R = + T aa a
Remember: What if I speed up and change direction? RT =+ aa a a R a T a 22 + aa a = changes direction changes speed

See the magic! Start with linear kinematic equation: fi vva t =+ But: ff vr = ω ii = ω ar = α rrr t →ω=ω+α t ⇒ω =ω +α
See the magic! fi t ω =ω +α vva t =+ ( ) 1 if 2 tt ∆θ = ω = ω + ω ( ) 1 2 xv t vvt ∆= = + 2 1 i 2 ∆θ=ω + α 2 1 i 2 t a t ∆= + 22 2 ω =ω + α∆θ 2 vv a x =+∆ ⇔ Note: Only valid if angular acceleration is constant
