Angular Motion with Constant Acceleration
Learning Goal:
To understand the meaning of the variables that appear in the equations for rotationalkinematics with constant angular acceleration.Rotational motion with a constant nonzero acceleration is not uncommon in the world around us. Forinstance, many machines have spinning parts. When the machine is turned on or off, the spinning partstend to change the rate of their rotation with virtually constant angular acceleration. Many introductoryproblems in rotational kinematics involve motion of a particle with constant nonzero angular acceleration.The kinematic equations for such motion can be written as and. Here, the meaning of the symbols is as follows:
is the angular position of the particle.
is the initial angular position of the particle.
is the angular velocity of the particle.
is the initial angular velocity of the particle.
is the angular acceleration of the particle.In answering the following questions, assume that the angular acceleration is constant and nonzero:.

Part A
True or false: The quantity represented by is a function of time (i.e., is not constant).
ANSWER:
truefalse
Part B
True or false: The quantity represented by is a function of time (i.e., is not constant).
ANSWER:
truefalseKeep in mind that represents an initial value, not a variable. It refers to the angular position of anobject at some initial moment.
Part C
True or false: The quantity represented by is a function of time (i.e., is not constant).
ANSWER:
truefalse
Part D
True or false: The quantity represented by is a function of time (i.e., is not constant).
ANSWER:
truefalseThe angular velocity always varies with time when the angular acceleration is nonzero.

Part E
Which of the following equations is not an explicit function of time , that is, does not involve as avariable, and is therefore useful when you do not know or do not need the time?
ANSWER:Part F
In the equation , what does the time variable represent?
Choose the answer that is
always
true. Several of the statements may be true in a particularproblem, but only one is always true.ANSWER:
the moment in time at which the angular velocity equalsthe moment in time at which the angular velocity equalsthe time elapsed from when the angular velocity equals until the angular velocityequalsConsider two particles A and B. The angular position of particle A, with constant angular acceleration,depends on time according to . At time , particle B, which alsoundergoes constant angular accelaration, has twice the angular acceleration, half the angular velocity, andthe same angular position that particle A had at time .
