Rotation with Constant Angular Acceleration

Rotation with constant angular acceleration

  • We have already studied motion with constant acceleration while studying translational motion
  • Now we will study the rotational motion with constant angular acceleration
  • when a rigid body rotates with constant acceleration we have

  • Thus we have

  • Again we have angular velocity

  • Equation (8) ,(9) and (10) are the equation of motion with constant angular acceleration

Question 1. A wheel initially has an angular velocity of 18 rad/s. It has a constant angular acceleration of 2.0 rad/s2 and is
slowing at first. What time elapses before its angular velocity is 18 rad/s in the direction opposite to its initial
angular velocity?

a 3 sec
b 6 sec
c 18 sec
d none of these

Solution 11


angular acceleration(α)=-2


or t=18
