moment of momentum
Moment of Momentum
  • To continue the analysis of rotational motion, we must also extend the idea of momentum.
  • Define an angular momentum L.
    • Based on the momentum p = mv
    • Includes a lever arm
    • Follows the rules for torque

p

r

momentum cross product
Momentum Cross Product
  • Angular momentum is a vector.
    • Vector cross product of the lever arm and momentum.
    • Direction follows the right-hand rule
    • Magnitude from sine rule

law of angular inertia
Law of Angular Inertia
  • The time derivative of angular momentum vector is the net torque vector.
  • By the law of reaction, all internal torques come in canceling pairs.
    • Add external torques
applying torque
Applying Torque
  • An external torque changes angular momentum.
    • dL/dt= t

starting the ride
A child of 180 N runs at 4.5 m/s and hops on the edge of a merry-go-round with radius 2.0 m.

If the motion is perpendicular to the radius, what is angular momentum?

The child starts with linear momentum.

W = mg, m = W/g = 18 kg.

p = mv = 81 kg m/s

At right angles, all the linear momentum contributes.

L = rp = 160 kg m2/s

The torque is due to the friction at contact.

spinning mass
Spinning Mass
  • The moment of inertia is the analog of mass for rotational motion.
  • The analog for angular momentum would be:

w

initial spin
A child of 180 N runs at 3.0 m/s and hops on the edge of a merry-go-round with radius 2.0 m and mass of 160 kg.

What is the period of rotation?

The moment of inertia and the angular momentum for the child on the ride was found before.

I = Id + Ic =390 kg m2

L = rp = 160 kg m2/s

The period is related to the angular velocity.

L = Iw = I(2p/T)

T= 2p I/ L = 15 s

single axis rotation
Single Axis Rotation
  • An axis of rotation that is fixed in direction gives a single axis rotation.
    • Simplest case has the axis through the center of mass
    • Angular momentum vector is parallel to the angular velocity

limitations
Limitations
  • There are limitations to the relationship between angular momentum and angular velocity.
    • Moving axis of rotation
    • Asymmetric axis of rotation
  • Angular momentum and angular velocity can have different directions.

angular momentum vector
Angular Momentum Vector
  • The vector form of the law of rotational action is generalized to use angular momentum vectors.
    • Correct for all axes
    • Correct for changes in direction as well as angular velocity
