2D Rigid Body Kinematics – Rotation about a fixed pivot/Pure rotation I. General rotation Rotation of a rigid body: change of orientation of any arbitrary line on the body. 21 Angular position: angle measured from a chosen reference (unit: radians) average angular velocity Angular velocity (unit: rad/s): instantaneous angular velocit y An ave t tt d dt θ θθ ω = = ∆− = 2 2 2 average angular acceleration gular acceleration (unit: rad/s ): instantaneous angular acceleration ave dd dt dt ωω α ωθ = = = = II.

The wheel starts to accelerate with a constant angular acceleration of 6 rad/s 2 for 5 s, and then slows down with a constant deceleration. The wheel rotates through a total
