Homework Help: An integral for rotational movement equations

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1
    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?

    Hi Solar Eclipse! :smile:

    (have an omega: ω and an alpha: α and a theta: θ :wink:)

    Yes, that's fine, if α is a constant, of course (except you left out the "+ C"! :wink:) …

    d(something) works the same no matter what the something is, and no matter whether you have d(something-else)s in the same equation. :smile:
