Angular motion and inertia

  1. Jun 23, 2009 #1
    I am trying to answer a question, but I don't really understand what is being asked.
    If you were to plot angular velocity against time and there was not force of acceleration explain what the curve would look like.

    I would guess a straight horizontal line since angular acceleration is the slope of the line. I dont really understand the question.

    Welcome to PF.

    Looks like you understand the question OK.

    If there is no forces on the system, then no acceleration and no change in rate of displacement as per Newton's First Law.
