### Rotational Dynamics: A child’s toy, a physics playground or a student’s nightmare

• A merry-go-round is spinning and we run and jump on it. What does it do?

What principles would apply?

• We are standing on the rim and our “friends” spin it faster. What happens to us?

• We are standing on the rim a walk towards the center. Does anything change?

### Rotational Variables

• Rotation about a fixed axis:

• Consider a disk rotating aboutan axis through its center:

• How do we describe the motion:

(Analogous to the linear case )

v = w R

x

R

### Rotational Variables...

• Recall: At a point a distance R away from the axis of rotation, the tangential motion:

• x =  R

• v = R

• a =  R

### Comparison to 1-D kinematics

AngularLinear

And for a point at a distance R from the rotation axis:

x = R v =  R aT =  R

Here aT refers to tangential acceleration

### System of Particles (Distributed Mass):

• Until now, we have considered the behavior of very simple systems (one or two masses).

• But real objects have distributed mass !

• For example, consider a simple rotating disk and 2 equal mass m plugs at distances r and 2r.

• Compare the velocities and kinetic energies at these two points.

1 K= ½ m v2 = ½ m (w r)2

w

2 K= ½ m (2v)2 = ½ m (w 2r)2

### System of Particles (Distributed Mass):

• Twice the radius, four times the kinetic energy

• The rotation axis matters too!

### A special point for rotationSystem of Particles: Center of Mass (CM)

• If an object is not held then it will rotate about the center of mass.

• Center of mass: Where the system is balanced !

• Building a mobile is an exercise in finding

centers of mass.

### System of Particles: Center of Mass

• How do we describe the “position” of a system made up of many parts ?

• Define the Center of Mass (average position):

• For a collection of N individual point like particles whose masses and positions we know:

RCM

m2

m1

r2

r1

x

(In this case, N = 2)

RCM = (12,6)

(12,12)

(24,0)

### Sample calculation:

• Consider the following mass distribution:

XCM = (m x 0 + 2m x 12 + m x 24 )/4m meters

YCM = (m x 0 + 2m x 12 + m x 0 )/4m meters

XCM= 12 meters

YCM= 6 meters

### System of Particles: Center of Mass

• For a continuous solid, convert sums to an integral.

where dmis an infinitesimal

mass element.

VCM

### Connection with motion...

• So for a rigid object which rotates about its center of mass and whose CM is moving:

For a point p rotating:

### Rotation & Kinetic Energy

• Consider the simple rotating system shown below. (Assume the masses are attached to the rotation axis by massless rigid rods).

• The kinetic energy of this system will be the sum of the kinetic energy of each piece:

• K = ½m1v12 + ½m2v22 + ½m3v32 + ½m4v42

### Rotation & Kinetic Energy

• Notice that v1 = w r1 , v2 = w r2 , v3 = w r3 , v4 = w r4

• So we can rewrite the summation:

• We recognize the quantity, moment of inertia orI, and write:

### Calculating Moment of Inertia

where r is the distance from the mass to the axis of rotation.

Example:Calculate the moment of inertia of four point masses

(m) on the corners of a square whose sides have length L,

about a perpendicular axis through the center of the square:

m

### Calculating Moment of Inertia...

• For a single object, Idepends on the rotation axis!

• Example:I1 = 4 m R2 = 4 m (21/2 L / 2)2

I1= 2mL2

I2= mL2

I= 2mL2

### Moments of Inertia

• For a continuous solid object we have to add up the mr2contribution for every infinitesimal mass element dm.

• An integral is required to find I:

Solid disk or cylinder of mass M and radius R, about perpendicular axis through its center.

I = ½ M R2

• Some examples of I for solid objects:

• We have two balls of the same mass. Ball 1 is attached to a 0.1 m long rope. It spins around at 2 revolutions per second. Ball 2 is on a 0.2 m long rope. It spins around at 2 revolutions per second.

• What is the ratio of the kinetic energy

of Ball 2 to that of Ball 1 ?

### Exercise Work & Energy

• Strings are wrapped around the circumference of two solid disks and pulled with identical forces, F, for the same linear distance, d. Disk 1 has a bigger radius, but both are identical material (i.e. their density r = M / V is the same). Both disks rotate freely around axes though their centers, and start at rest.

• Which disk has the biggest angular velocity after the drop?

W =F d = ½ I w2
