Students will learn the difference between angular speed (\omega) and tangential speed (v) and how to calculate both.
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.
Explore the relationships between angular and linear speeds by racing a car around a circular track.
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.
