L30 M 3/29/10 Physics 2010 3 Rotational Kinematics Describing rotational motion = a tan r = v r = 2 π τ = 2 f angle of rotation (rads) angular velocity (rad/s) angular acceleration (rad/s 2 ) Recall that centripetal acceleration is expressed in terms of tangential velocity as: a r = v 2 /r. How is it expressed in terms of angular velocity ω ? A) a r = ω 2 /r B) a r = r ω D) a r = r 2 ω 2 a r = v 2 /r = (r ω ) 2 /r = r ω 2
