Angular velocity irrespective of axis of rotation?

  1. Sep 13, 2013 #1
    How exactly can the angular velocity of a 2 dimensional laminar object be the same with respect to all axes of rotation perpendicular to its plane ?

    try to do it for a rod and i applies same for others

    now for this rod ____________ (anticlockwise rotation) α angular acceleration

    with o point on it

    at x dist from o
    vx = xα

    at 2x dist from o
    v2x = 2xα

    at 3x dist from o
    v3x = 3xα

    now relative to x dist
    αrel = α
    for both points 2x and 3x

    rest you must do
