## Rotational Kinematics

We have now defined angle, angular velocity, and angular acceleration

exactlyin the same way we defined their linear analogus, displacement, velocity, and acceleration:

When we studied

linear motion,we derived the "big three Kinematics Equations":Since our definitions of the

rotationalquantities areidenticalto the definitions of the analogouslinearquantities, we canimmediatelywrite down the same "big threeRotationalKinematics Equations":
