## Constant Angular Acceleration

Constant angular acceleration ( $$\omega$$ (Greek symbol omega) ) of an object is the constant rate at which the angle velocity changes with respect to time.

### Constant Angular Acceleration Formula

$$\omega_f = \omega_i \;+\; \alpha t$$          $$constant \; angular \; acceleration \;=\; initial \; angular \; velocity \;+\; \left( \; angular \; acceleration \;\;x\;\; time \; \right)$$

Where:

$$\alpha$$ (Greek symbol alpha) = angular acceleration

$$t$$ = time

$$\omega_f$$ (Greek symbol omega) = constant angular velocity (final)

$$\omega_i$$ (Greek symbol omega) = initial angular velocity
