Q:

# What is angular motion?

A:

Angular motion is the motion of a body about a fixed point. The motion of pendulums and planets are examples of angular motion. Angular motion can also be used to describe the angle made during the motion of a body about a fixed axis.

Motion is the change in position of an object from its initial position to its final position with respect to time. Angular displacement or rotational displacement is the angle passed over at the point by a line drawn from the given axis of rotation, and it is expressed in radians. Angular motion with constant acceleration occurs in a machine with spinning parts.

Vibratory motion occurs at a fixed point as an object moves back and forth. It can also be defined as an object forced to move to and fro periodically, occurring when a particle is vibrated. Oscillatory motion is related to vibratory motion.

Find the angular displacement using the formula ? = d?/dt, ?/t or v/r. "?" represents the angular velocity, "d?" represents change in angular displacement, "dt" stands for change in time,"?" represents displacement and "t" represents time taken. "V" is the linear velocity, and "r" is the radius of circular path.

While there are several formulas for angular acceleration, the basic equation is the change in angular velocity divided by the change in time. This relationship is shown in the following equation: (Av2 - Av1)/(T2 - T1).
