Physics 8: 1-3 Angular Motion and Acceleration


Reading Preparation

Text Reading: Giancoli, Physics - Principles with Applications, Chapter 8: 1-3

Study Points

Key Equations

(from chapter 2)
v = v0 + at ω = ω0 + αt
x = v0t + ½at2 θ = ω0t + ½αt2
v2 = v02 + 2ax ω2 = ω02 + 2αθ
vave = ½(v + v0) ωave = ½(ω + ω0)

Web Lecture
