Im talking calc and physics in highschool right now and I was bored and messed with my formulas but I need some help now.It's for rotational movement.
If I have [tex]\varpi[/tex]d[tex]\varpi[/tex]=[tex]\alpha[/tex]d[tex]\theta[/tex] and then I take the integral will it be ([tex]\varpi[/tex]^2)/2 = [tex]\alpha\theta[/tex] or did I do it all wrong?

(have an omega: ω and an alpha: α and a theta: θ ) Yes, that's fine, if α is a constant, of course (except you left out the "+ C"! ) … d(something) works the same no matter what the something is, and no matter whether you have d(somethingelse)s in the same equation.
