Is angular acceleration zero in this situation?
A cylindrical space station located in distant space, rotates with constant angular velocity about its axis. An astronaut rotates with the station and is located at the perimeter, a distance R from the axis.

Sure sounds like it to me. (It says 'constant angular velocity'.)

Doc Al,
Thanks for your response. I'm pretty confident in that answer as well. However, I began second-guessing myself because everything seems to different when it's angular and not linear.
