Catch up

- A “special” net force is necessary and that action depends on the location from the axis of rotation
- For translational motion and acceleration the position of the force doesn’t matter (doesn’t change the physics we see)
- IMPORTANT: For rotational motion and angular acceleration: we always reference the specific position of the force relative to the axis of rotation.
- Vectors are simply a tool for visualizing Newton’s Laws

A force applied at a distance from the rotation axis gives a torque

- Only the tangential component of the force matters
- With torque the position of the force matters

- Torque is the rotational equivalent of force
Torque has units of kg m2/s2 = (kg m/s2) m = N m

NET = r FTang = r m aTang

The further a mass is away from this axis the greater the inertia (resistance) to rotation

- This is the rotational version of FNET = ma
- Moment of inertia, I≡ m r2 , (here I is just a point on the wheel) is the rotational equivalent of mass.
- If I is big, more torque is required to achieve a given angular acceleration.

- A constant torque gives constant angularacceleration iff the mass distribution and the axis of rotation remain constant.

- Recall that linear motion involves x, y and/or z vectors
- Angular motion can be quantified by defining a vector along
the axis of rotation.

- The axis of rotation is the one set of points that is fixed with respect to a rotation.
- Use the right hand rule

F cos(90°-q) = FTang.

- Magnitude is given by |r| |F| sin q
or, equivalently, by the |Ftangential | |r|

or by |F| |rperpendicular to line of action |

- Direction is parallel to the axis of rotation with respect to the “right hand rule”
- And for a rigid object= I a

- Recall the Work Kinetic-Energy Theorem: K = WNET
- This applies to both rotational as well as linear motion.
- So for an object that rotates about a fixed axis
- For an object which is rotating and translating

- Case 1
- Case 2
- Same

- In which of the cases shown below is the torque provided by the applied force about the rotation axis biggest? In both cases the magnitude and direction of the applied force is the same.
- Remember torque requires F, rand sin q
or the tangential force component times perpendicular distance

- A cylinder is about to roll down an inclined plane. What is its speed at the bottom of the plane ?
- Use Work-Energy theorem

Mgh = ½ Mv2 + ½ ICMw2

Mgh = ½ Mv2 + ½ (½ M R2)(v/R)2 = ¾ Mv2

v = 2(gh/3)½

- Consider a rigid distribution of point particles rotating in the x-y plane around the z axis, as shown below. The total angular momentum around the origin Is the sum of the angular momentum of each particle:
- Even if no connecting rod we can deduce an Lz

Using vi = ri, we get

No External Torque so Lz is constant

- A student sits on a stool, initially at rest, but which is free to rotate. The moment of inertia of the student plus the stool is I. They throw a heavy ball of mass M with speed v such that its velocity vector moves a distance d from the axis of rotation.

Top view: before after

- The concept of angular momentum is also valid on a submicroscopic scale
- Angular momentum has been used in the development of modern theories of atomic, molecular and nuclear physics
- In these systems, the angular momentum has been found to be a fundamental quantity
- Fundamental here means that it is an intrinsic property of these objects
