Physics 1D03 - Lecture 10 1 Rotation of a Rigid Body (Chapter 10) 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:

Physics 1D03 - Lecture 10 2 Units: by convention, angles are measured in radians. r s arc length 2 π rad = 360 o Angular velocity has units of rad/s or s -1 Angular acceleration has units of rad/s 2 or s -2 (The radian is a ratio of two lengths, and not really a unit. Some equations will require angles to be in radians.)
