In M1 you learnt the five formulae for motion with constant linear acceleration:

We can consider motion with constant angular acceleration in the same way:

While the first set of formulae cover the displacement, velocity and acceleration in terms of straight-line distance, the second set cover the same quantities but for rotating objects.
