## Rotational Motion

Hi guys, I have a few doubts on Rotational Motion and hope someone can help me out.

This 3 formula is for finding angular velocity, angular acceleration and angular displacement right?
ω=ωi+αt
ω²=ωi²+2αδ
δ=ωit+1/2αt²

And this 3 formula is for finding the linear velocity/acceleration/displacement in a angular shape?
s=rδ
v=rω
α=rα

Thanks.

 If you have no problems on linear acceleration then then only thing that changes in rotational motion is that u becomes ω , a becomes α , x becomes θ . In both of your questions , the answer is yes .
 Thank you ZxcvbnM2000 for the reply. I want to ask can I use this equation v=rω to find the angular velocity as well?

## Rotational Motion

yes of course as long as you know the linear velocity and the radius ;p
 Ok thank you for the explanation and help. Out of topic abit, if a rock is thrown downward from the top of a building, the velocity I can set it as -ve or +ve, and usually people set it to +ve for the working to be easier, am I right?
