**School of Engineering**ENGINEERING MECHANICS CHAPTER 8 Kinetics of Rotational Motion**8.1 Brief**Kinetics of rotational motion is the study of rotational motion caused by external torque. 8.2 Newton’s second law for Rotational Motion It can be written in mathematical form as: = I for a single torque = I for several torque where is the torque (Nm – rotating shaft) I is the moment of inertia (kgm2) is the acceleration (rad/s2) (Note:- I = mk2, where m is the mass and k is the radius of gyration.)**8.3 Free Body diagram**• We note that since the motion is caused by torque acting on the body, the first step would be to show all the torque acting on it. This is set out in the form of a free body diagram indicating clearly all external torque. A free body diagram is a diagram showing only the body and the torque acting directly on it. • 8.4 Sign Convention • We are interested to determine the motion of the body hence we choose the direction of the resulting rotation as the positive direction. However, any direction can be selected as positive but this must be strictly adhered to throughout the analysis.**Example 8.1**A rotor with a mass moment of inertia of 6 kgm2 about its center of mass has a torque of 90 Nm applied to it. Determine the angular acceleration of the rotor. 90 Nm Solution: By Newton’s law, = I 90 = 6 = 15 rad/s2**Flywheel**5kg Spindle 20kg Example 8.2 The flywheel has a mass of 5 kg and a radius of gyration of 200 mm. The 20 kg mass, attached to a rope wrapped around the spindle of diameter 30 mm, is allowed to fall from rest. Calculate the angular acceleration of the wheel and the acceleration of the 20 kg mass.**dia =30 mm**T T 20g Solution: For the flywheel, I = mk2 = 5 x 0.22 = 0.2 kgm2 Torque on flywheel, = T x 0.015 Nm = I T x 0.015 = 0.2 T = (0.2 / 0.015) ---------- (1) For the mass, F = ma 20g – T = 20a ----------- (2) a = r = a / 0.015 ------------- (3)**From (1) & (3),**T = (0.2 / 0.015) x (a / 0.015) = 0.2a / 0.0152 Sub into (2), 20g – 0.2a / 0.0152 = 20a a = 0.216 m/s2 From (3), = 0.216 / 0.015 = 14.4 rad/s2**Winch**300kg Example 8.3 A power-driven winch is used to raise a mass of 300 kg with an acceleration of 2 m/s2. The winch drum is 0.5 m in diameter and has a mass moment of inertia about its center of 8 kgm2. What torque must be applied to the winch drum?**T**T a 300g For the mass, F = ma T - 300g = 300 x 2 T = 3543 N • For the drum, • a = r • 2 = 0.25 = 8 rad/s2 • = I • a - 3543 x 0.25 = 8 x 8 • a = 950 Nm**Example 8.4**A compound pulley having a mass of 4 kg and a radius of gyration 0.28 m, is connected to two masses A and B as shown.

It has a drum of 80 cm diameter and a mass moment of inertia of 30 kgm2. It is used to raise block A of mass 200 kg up the slope as shown in the figure. The coefficient of friction between block A and the slope is 0.3.
