# Rotational Motion

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Rotational motion, abbreviared as $$\theta$$ (Greek symbol theta), determines the change of position, in terms of radians or degrees, with a known angular velocity and time.

## Rotational Motion Formula

 $$\large{ \theta =\omega t }$$

### Where:

 Units English Metric $$\large{ \theta }$$ (Greek symbol theta) = angular position (rotational motion) $$\large{deg}$$ $$\large{rad}$$ $$\large{ \omega }$$ (Greek symbol omega) = average angular velocity $$\large{\frac{deg}{sec}}$$ $$\large{\frac{rad}{s}}$$ $$\large{ t }$$ = time $$\large{sec}$$ $$\large{s}$$
