  1. Angular acceleration is a vector quantity representing the rate of change of angular velocity of a body experiencing rotational motion. (Web site)
  2. Angular acceleration is a measure of the change in angular velocity over time.
  3. Angular acceleration is a vector whose magnitude is defined as the change in angular velocity in unit time.
  4. Angular acceleration is equal to change in angular velocity divided by time taken. (Web site)
  5. Angular acceleration is measured in revolutions per minute squared or in radians per second squared. (Web site)


  1. If a body undergoes no angular acceleration, there is no net torque acting on it.


  1. Further, the angular acceleration of an object is proportional to the net torque acting on it, which is the analog of Newton’s Second Law of motion.

Centrifugal Force

  1. Centrifugal force, coriolis force, angular acceleration, cyclones and anticyclones, Foucault pendulum, etc.


  1. The cupula is concerned with equilibrium control during motion and with angular acceleration (rotation of the head).

Constant Values

  1. For constant values of angular acceleration, a rotating body conforms to the rotational equations of motion.

Power Required

  1. The power required for angular acceleration is the torque times the angular frequency.
  2. The power required for angular acceleration is the torque times the angular velocity. (Web site)


  1. For all constant values of the torque, τ, of an object, the angular acceleration will also be constant. (Web site)

Constant Rate

  1. That is, a vehicle following the spiral at constant speed will have a constant rate of angular acceleration. (Web site)


  1. If we change the number of revolutions the wheel makes per second, then each point on the wheel has angular acceleration.

Si Unit

  1. The SI unit for angular acceleration is derived from this unit of angular measurement. (Web site)


  1. The SI unit of angular acceleration is radians per second squared and is denoted by the symbol alpha. (Web site)

Angular Displacement

  1. Angular velocity is the rate of change of angular displacement and angular acceleration is the rate of change of angular velocity.


  1. Tau is the torque, lambda (the capital L) is angular momentum, omega (looks like a lower-case w) is the angular velocity, and alpha is angular acceleration.
  2. It is the ratio of torque to angular acceleration and is analogous to the role of mass in linear mechanics (ratio of force to linear acceleration).
  3. Torque, like angular velocity and angular acceleration, is a vector quantity. (Web site)


  1. To measure the moment of inertia of a body we need to observe the angular acceleration produced by a known torque.
  2. Discover the relationships between angular acceleration, moment of inertia, angular momentum and torque. (Web site)


  1. Linear velocity and acceleration of the scalar world are mapped to the angular velocity and angular acceleration of the world of vectors. (Web site)

Angular Velocity

  1. Thus, the angular acceleration is the first derivative of the angular velocity, just as acceleration is the first derivative of velocity.
  2. Rotation is described in terms of angular displacement, time, angular velocity, and angular acceleration.
  3. Angular acceleration is the rate of change of angular velocity over time. (Web site)

Angular Acceleration

  1. The rotational analogues of force, mass, and acceleration are torque, moment of inertia, and angular acceleration, respectively.
  2. In the general case, angular displacement, angular velocity, angular acceleration and torque are considered to be vectors. (Web site)
  3. The ratio of torque and angular acceleration (how heavy is it to start, stop, or otherwise change rotation) is given by the moment of inertia.
