Angular displacement:

   f   i
Note: angles measured CW are negative and angles measured
CCW are positive.  is measured in radians.
2 radians = 360 = 1 revolution

Angular Velocity
The average and instantaneous angular speeds are:


av 
and   lim
t 0 t
t
 is actually a vector quantity.
The direction of  is along the axis of rotation. Since
we are concerned primarily with motion in a plane we
will ignore the vector nature until we get to angular
momentum when we will have to deal with it.

The linear speed depends
on the radius r at which the
object is located.

Centripetal Acceleration
Consider an object moving
in a circular path of radius r
at constant speed.

Here, v  0. The
direction of v is changing.

If v  0, then a  0.
Then there is a net force
acting on the object.

Centripetal Acceleration
Conclusion: with no net force acting on the object it would
travel in a straight line at constant speed
It is still true that F = ma.
But what acceleration do we use?

Centripetal Acceleration
The velocity of a particle is tangent to its path.
For an object moving in uniform circular motion, the
acceleration is radially inward.

Banked Curves
A highway curve has a radius of 825 m. At what angle
should the road be banked so that a car traveling at 26.8
m/s has no tendency to skid sideways on the road? (Hint:
No tendency to skid means the frictional force is zero.)

We need the radial position of the car itself, not the radius of
the track. In either case the radius is not a uniquely
determined quantity.

Where M is the mass of the central body.
For example, it would be Msun if speaking of the planets in the
solar system. For non-circular orbits (elliptical) the mean
radius is used and so the mean velocity is obtained.

is changing.
