Homework Help: Average Angular Acceleration

  1. Nov 29, 2007 #1
    I was just wondering what the equation for average angular acceleration is

    At first i thought it was W avg = Delta Pheta/ Delta Time
    but then i think that might be the Average Angular Speed formula...

    Any ideas? i know it's a simple question so hopefully no one will get annoyed =P
