Rotation (about a fixed axis*) is like one-dimensional motion *if the axis can change, things get more complicated Which variables in rotational motion correspond to which variables in one-dimensional motion? one-dimensional motion rotation about a fixed axis linear variable symbol unit s rotational variable sym bol units distance x m angle è radians x velocity v =dx/dt m/s angular velocity ù radians/s xx acceleration a =dv /dt m/s angular 2 acceleration á radians/s 2 Similiar (“isomorphic”) equations Just substitute in the corresponding variables
