Alta High Physics Measuring Angular  Displacement θ  = L/r 360° = 2 π radians = 1 revolution v= ωr = Linear velocity = angular velocity x radius a = αr Linear acceleration = angular acceleration x radius θ r L

Alta High Physics Sample Problems If an exploding fireworks shell makes a  10° angle in the sky and you know it is  2000 meters above your head, how  many meters wide is the arc of the  explosion?

Alta High Physics Solution θ  = L/r θ  = 10° x  π rad/180° = 0.17 rad 0.17 rad = L/2000 meters L = 2000 meters x 0.17 rad = 349 meters
