Describing Angular Motion
A series of high school Physics lectures.
Angular Displacement, Velocity, and Acceleration
Discussion of angular position, velocity, and acceleration, deriving definitions for each quantity from their rotational analogs.
Rotation with Constant Angular Acceleration
Relating Angular and Linear Quantities
Having defined the rotational quantities, we can draw on our definition of the radian as a measure of angular displacement, and establish three equations relating the angular quantities to the linear quantities corresponding to the motion of a point on the rotating object.
