Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 3 Rotations: Axes and Sign When we talk about rotation, it is implied that there is a rotation “axis”. This is usually called the “z” axis (we usually omit the z subscript for simplicity). Use the right-hand rule to determine the direction of rotation. Counter-clockwise (increasing θ ) is usually called positive. Clockwise (decreasing θ ) is usually called negative . z + ϖ

Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 You and a friend are playing on the merry-go-round at Happy Hollow Park. You stand at the outer edge of the merry-go-round and your friend stands halfway between the outer edge and the center. Assume the rotation rate of the merry-go-round is constant. Who has greater angular velocity? A) You do B) Your friend does C) Same Because within the same amount of time you and  your friend both travel 2 π .   An Old Example
