Rotation angle and angular velocity

 Page 1 / 9
• Define arc length, rotation angle, radius of curvature and angular velocity.
• Calculate the angular velocity of a car wheel spin.

In Kinematics , we studied motion along a straight line and introduced such concepts as displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Two-Dimensional Kinematics dealt with motion in two dimensions. Projectile motion is a special case of two-dimensional kinematics in which the object is projected into the air, while being subject to the gravitational force, and lands a distance away. In this chapter, we consider situations where the object does not land but moves in a curve. We begin the study of uniform circular motion by defining two angular quantities needed to describe rotational motion.

Rotation angle

When objects rotate about some axis—for example, when the CD (compact disc) in [link] rotates about its center—each point in the object follows a circular arc. Consider a line from the center of the CD to its edge. Each pit    used to record sound along this line moves through the same angle in the same amount of time. The rotation angle is the amount of rotation and is analogous to linear distance. We define the rotation angle     $\text{Δ}\theta$ to be the ratio of the arc length to the radius of curvature:

$\text{Δ}\theta =\frac{\text{Δ}s}{r}\text{.}$ All points on a CD travel in circular arcs. The pits along a line from the center to the edge all move through the same angle Δ θ size 12{Δθ} {} in a time Δ t size 12{Δt} {} . The radius of a circle is rotated through an angle Δ θ size 12{Δθ} {} . The arc length Δs size 12{Δs} {} is described on the circumference.

The arc length     $\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{Δ}s$ is the distance traveled along a circular path as shown in [link] Note that $r$ is the radius of curvature    of the circular path.

We know that for one complete revolution, the arc length is the circumference of a circle of radius $r$ . The circumference of a circle is $2\pi r$ . Thus for one complete revolution the rotation angle is

$\text{Δ}\theta =\frac{2\pi r}{r}=2\pi \text{.}$

This result is the basis for defining the units used to measure rotation angles, $\text{Δ}\theta$ to be radians    (rad), defined so that

$2\pi \phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{rad}=\text{1 revolution.}$

A comparison of some useful angles expressed in both degrees and radians is shown in [link] .

Comparison of angular units
Degree Measures Radian Measure
$\text{30º}$ $\frac{\pi }{6}$
$\text{60º}$ $\frac{\pi }{3}$
$\text{90º}$ $\frac{\pi }{2}$
$\text{120º}$ $\frac{2\pi }{3}$
$\text{135º}$ $\frac{3\pi }{4}$
$\text{180º}$ $\pi$ Points 1 and 2 rotate through the same angle ( Δ θ size 12{Δθ} {} ), but point 2 moves through a greater arc length Δ s size 12{ left (Δs right )} {} because it is at a greater distance from the center of rotation ( r ) size 12{ $$r$$ } {} .

If $\text{Δ}\theta =2\pi$ rad, then the CD has made one complete revolution, and every point on the CD is back at its original position. Because there are $\text{360º}$ in a circle or one revolution, the relationship between radians and degrees is thus

$2\pi \phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{rad}=\text{360º}$

so that

$1\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{rad}=\frac{\text{360º}}{2\pi }\approx \text{57.}3º\text{.}$

Angular velocity

How fast is an object rotating? We define angular velocity     $\omega$ as the rate of change of an angle. In symbols, this is

$\omega =\frac{\text{Δ}\theta }{\text{Δ}t}\text{,}$

where an angular rotation $\text{Δ}\theta$ takes place in a time $\text{Δ}t$ . The greater the rotation angle in a given amount of time, the greater the angular velocity. The units for angular velocity are radians per second (rad/s).

Angular velocity $\omega$ is analogous to linear velocity $v$ . To get the precise relationship between angular and linear velocity, we again consider a pit on the rotating CD. This pit moves an arc length $\text{Δ}s$ in a time $\text{Δ}t$ , and so it has a linear velocity

Maxima s below equilibrium. Whilst minima s above. Equilibrium
Afran
Wht is demand
Afran
is the willingness and the ability of a consumer to purchase goods at a given price and at a particular point in time.
Assan
Ohhk different question? Ask
Afran
why is the demand curve downwards sloppy?
Assan
3 Reasons.. 1... diminishing marginal utility 2... substitution effect 3...income effect
Harshita
thanks
Assan
Because of the negative or inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded
Afran
what is the law of diminishing returns states?
Assan
ohk
Assan
The law states that all other things being equall as much of variable factor(labour) is employed on fixed factor(land) the marginal product rises..attain a maximum and begins to fall.

what is macro economics?
Oyas
the branch of economics concerned with large-scale or general economic factors, such as interest rates and national productivity.
idk
in other words it is the study of the economic as a whole

Hello
MP
it helps an individual in rational decision making process
Assan
Fine and u
Buzabaryaho
how does it make individual in rational dicision making decisions
Annor
if an individual is faced with unlimited wants.
Assan
it also helps an individual in arranging their wants in order of their importance.
Assan
ohk
Annor
ok
Al-ameen
Hello guys
My name is Radah
Please what is a scale of preference used for?
it's use for arranging wants in order of their importance.
Assan
in other words when an individual is faced with unlimited wants,scale of preference would help the individual to select the most important wants.
Assan
Thanks

who is a price taker?
A price taker is a person or a company who have no control to dictate a prices of a goods or services
Unique
Someone who sets price
Nureni
In the trading world, a price taker is a trader who does not affect the price of the stock if he or she buys or sells shares.
Nureni
A price taker refers to a firm or an individual who sets the price of his good and services based on an external factor. In other words he cannot choose and set a price by himself. An example is a firm operating in perfect competition where prices are set through the price mechanism.
Tba
in a common and suitable sense state the law of diminishing returns
The higher the satisfaction derived from a particular commodity,the lower the demand for it but that law doesn't match in some instances.
Nureni
state the features of an imperfect competitive market
Naomi

is economics a science
yes. a social science.
Carlos
Yes of cause It uses scientific principles in its research. That is to say, analyzing data, making experiment as well as making deductions and drawing conclusions
Aziz
U can understand the scientific nature of economics by learning about the methods used by Abhijit Banerjee(indian) ,the nobel prize laureate 2019.
Harshita
it is considered as a social science
idk
Hence, economics is a science, a social science many can call it, or more appropriately, a young science
Taha
it can be called social science because of behaviour ,which is unpredictable.There r many theroies in economics which make economics a social science But some economic theories makes it science
Harshita
human behaviour*
Harshita
remember science derives from the root words "to know". With that being said most fields of study can be considered as a science or soft science, for they possess key knowledge to attaining understanding of our world.
Alexander
economics is a science cos it deals with human wants, desire or neads in order to satisfy them
Unique
according comparision of political science economic is science.

Hi
MP
price paid by consumers after the sales tax is called?
why government impose price floor on certain products?
Pinias
how can black market be occurred when price ceiling is introduced?
Pinias
How can inflation affect goods and services?
Ph
When prices rise for energy, food, commodities, and other goods and services, the entire economy is affected
Joan
If inflation becomes too high the economy can suffer conversely, if inflation is controlled and at reasonable levels, the economy may prosper. With controlled, lower inflation, employment increases.
Joan
Is it necessary to make decision when it fails you
Pls when what fails u
