Unformatted text preview: One-Dimensional Kinematics . Thus we can simply state the equations, alongside their translational analogues: v f = v o + at σ f = σ o + αt x f = x o + v o t + at 2 μ f = μ o + σ o t + αt 2 v f 2 = v o 2 + 2 ax σ f 2 = σ o 2 +2 αμ x = ( v o + v f ) t μ = ( σ o + σ f ) t These equations for rotational motion are used identically as the corollary equations for translational motion. In addition, like translational motion, these equations are only valid when the acceleration, α , is constant. These equations are frequently used and form the basis for the study of rotational motion....
