1 Physics 1D03 - Lecture 10 Rotation of a Rigid Body (kinematics) Text Sections 10.1—10.3 Practice Problems: Chapter 10, Conceptual Question 1; problems 1, 3, 9, 17, 19 Physics 1D03 - Lecture 10 Rotation of a Rigid Body Each particle travels in a circle. The speeds of the particles differ, but each one completes a full revolution in the same time. We describe the rotational motion using angle , angular velocity , and angular acceleration:

Some equations will require angles to be in radians.)
