Unformatted text preview: Rotation All measurements in radians All kinematics equations apply to rotation, just substitute omega for V and alpha for a Omega is measured in radians per second squared (for uniform circular motion) (angular position, s is arc length, r is radius) (angular displacement, positive for counterclockwise rotation, negative for clockwise rotation) (linear velocity to angular velocity) (tangential acceleration to angular acceleration) (radial acceleration) (for a body) (for particles) (Parallel-Axis Theorem, relates the rotational inertia of a body about any axis to that of the same body about a parallel axis, h is the perpendicular distance between the two axes) (torque) \...
