Homework Help: Velocity and angular acceleration

  1. Nov 18, 2006 #1
    Is this true?

    [tex]\vec \omega \times r = \vec v[/tex]

    That's actually meaningless.

    This is true:[tex]\vec {\omega} \times \vec{r} = \vec {v}[/tex]

    (with respect to fixed origin)

    Assuming omega is the angular velocity, r position vector, and v, the tangential velocity.
