Angular Displacement Formula

The angular displacement is the angle through which a body rotates in circular path. It is denoted by $\theta$ and expressed in radians or degrees.

Here are some problems given on angular displacement based on the above formula.

Solved Examples

Question 1: A motor bike is moving in circular track covers the whole track of distance 50m having radius of 4m from the center. Find its angular displacement.
Given: Linear displacement S = 50 m,
          Radius of circular path r = 4 m,
The angular displacement is given by
$\theta$ = $\frac{S}{r}$
= $\frac{50}{4}$
= 12.5 radians.

Question 2: A body is moving in a circular path with a angular speed of 59 rad/sec. Calculate its angular displacement at time t = 5 s?
given: Angular speed $\omega$ = 59 rad/sec,
         Time t = 5 s
The angular displacement is given by
$\theta$ = $\omega$ t
= 59 $\times$ 5
= 295 radians.
