Students will learn the difference between angular speed (\omega) and tangential speed (v) and how to calculate both.
Learn how the steady motion of the Moon around the Earth, and the phases created by the relative position of the Earth, Sun, and Moon, allow us to tell time by simply looking at the shape and orientation of the Moon.
Explore the relationships between angular and linear speeds by racing a car around a circular track.
Provides a calculus-based explanation of the origin of the the formula v=rw and shows an example of where the equation can be applied.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Angular Speed.
This study guide provides an overview of circular and rotational motion: centripetal force, discussion of fictitious force, calculating period and frequency, determining the rotational axis, calculating angular quantities, and precession.
