CIRCULAR MOTION

MEASURING CIRCULAR MOTION (METHOD 1) 1 complete rotation = 1 revolution Measure rotational motion by counting the number of rotations Most common unit of measurement = revolution (abbreviated rev)

MEASURING CIRCULAR MOTION (METHOD 2) 360° Can also measure using degrees 1 rotation = 1 revolution = 360°

MEASURING CIRCULAR MOTION (METHOD 3) Θ=s/r Radian (rad): angle with vertex at center of circle whose sides cut off an arc on circle equal to its radius Radius = r Length of arc = s angle = 1 radian Unitless dimension – use rad to avoid confusion

CONVERTING BETWEEN DIFFERENT MEASUREMENT By definition: 1 rev = 360° = 2π rad Convert 10π rad to revolutions

CONVERTING FROM DEGREE TO RAD θrad=(π/180)θdegrees Convert 75 degrees to radians

ANGULAR DISPLACEMENT Distance through which any point on rotating body moves (angular distance instead of linear distance) Example: when a wheel makes one complete rotation, it’s angular displacement has been 1 rev, 2π rad, or 360°

ANGULAR VELOCITY Similar to linear velocity, except instead of linear displacement, use angular displacement Angular velocity = rev/time OR ω = angular displacement (θ)/time (t) Units = rad/s or rev/min ω= θ t

EXAMPLE A motorcycle wheel turns 7200 times while being ridden for 10 min. What is the angular velocity in rev/min?

LINEAR VELOCITY The linear speed on any point on rotating circle = v = ωr v = linear velocity ω = angular velocity r = radius Can measure using stroboscope or strobe light

EXAMPLE: LINEAR VELOCITY A wheel of 1. 00 m radius turns at 1000 rpm. Find the linear speed of a point on the rim of the wheel.

ANGULAR ACCELERATION Angular acceleration = rate of change of angular velocity α α= Δω t = angular acceleration Δω = change in angular velocity t = time
