**CHAPTER-11** Rolling, Torque, and Angular Momentum

**Ch 11-2 Rolling as Translational and Rotation Combined** • Rolling Motion Rotation of a rigid body about an axis not fixed in space • Smooth Rolling: Rolling motion without slipping Motion of com “O” and point “P” • When the wheel rotates through angle , P moves through an arc length s given by s=R Differentiating with respect to t We get ds/dt= R d/dt • vcom= R

**Ch 11-2 Rolling as Translational and Rotation Combined** • Rolling motion of a rigid body: Purely rotational motion + Purely translational mption • Pure rotational motion:all points move with same angular velocity . • Points on the edge have velocity vcom= R with vtop= + vcom and vbot=- vcom • Pure translational motion:All points on the wheel move towards right with same velocity vcom

**The rear wheel on a clowns’ bicycle has twice the radius** of the front wheel. (a) When the bicycle is moving , is the linear speed at the very top of the rear wheel greater than, less than, or the same as that of the very top of the front wheel? (b) Is the angular speed of the rear wheel greater than, less than, or the same as that of the front wheel? 1. (a) vtop-front=vtop-rear=2 vcom same; (b) vtop-front= vtop-rear = 2frontRfront= 2rearRrear rear/ front = Rfront /Rrear Rrear = 2 Rfront rear/ front = Rfront /Rrear= 1/2 rear < front less Ch-11 Check Point 1

**Ch 11-3 Kinetic Energy of Rolling** • Rolling as a Pure Rotation about an axis through P Kinetic energy of rolling wheel rotating about an axis through P • K= (IP 2)/2 where IP= Icom+MR2 and R = vcom • K= (IP 2)/2= (Icom 2+MR2 2)/2 K= (Icom 2)/2 + (Mv2com)/2 K= KRot+KTrans

**Ch 11-4 The Forces of Rolling** • In smooth rolling, static frictional force fs opposes the sliding force at point P Vcom=R; d/dt(Vcom)=d/dt(R) acom=R d/dt=R • Accelerating Torque acting clockwise; static frictional force fs tendency to rotate counter clockwise

Components of force along the incline plane (upward) and perpendicular to plane Sliding force downward-static friction force upward; opposite trends fs-Mgsin=Macom-x; acom-x=(fs/M)-gsin To calculate fs apply Newtons Second Law for angular motion: Net torque= I Torque of fs about body com: fsR= I But =-acom-x/R; then fs =Icom/R=-Icomacom-x/R2 acom-x=(fs/M)-gsin =(-Icomacom-x/MR2)- gsin acom-x(1+Icom /MR2) = - gsin acom-x= - gsin/(1+Icom /MR2)

** Disk A and B are identical and rolls across a floor with** equal speeds. The disk A rolls up an incline, reaching a maximum height h, and disk B moves up an incline that is identical except that is frictionless. Is the maximum height reached by disk B greater than, less than or equal to h? A is rolling and its kinetic energy before decent KA= Icom2 /2+ M(vcom)2/2 KB= M(vcom)2/2 vB<vA Height h of incline, given by conservation of mechanical energy K= - Ug; h=v2/2g hB<hA because vB<vA Ch-11 Check Point 2

**Ch 11-5 The Yo-Yo** • Yo-Yo is Physics teaching Lab. • Yo-Yo rolls down its string for a distance h and then climbs back up. • During rolling down yo-yo loses potential energy (mgh) and gains translational kinetic energy (mv2com/2) and rotational kinetic energy ( Icom2/2). • As it climbs up it loses translational kinetic energy and gains potential energy . • For yo-yo, equations of incline plane modify to =90 • acom=- g/(1+Icom /MR02)
