3. So far we have looked at motion in a straight line or curved line- translational motion. • We will now consider and describe rotational motion – where an object turns about an axis. • We will start by mentioning some keywords.

4. Angular position • Angular displacement • Angular velocity • Angular acceleration • These terms are analogous to their linear equivalents.

5. Angular position • The angular position is an angle measured between a reference line and a fixed direction taken as zero. Reference line

6. Angular position • The angular position θ is: (radians) s: arc length Reference line

7. Angular displacement • The angular displacement gives the change in angular position of a rotating body. t2 Δθ t1 θ2 θ1 Counter-clockwise rotation is positive displacement.

8. Angular velocity • If an object moves through the angle an angular position of θ1 to θ2the average angular velocity is: t2 Δθ t1 θ2 θ1 (average angular velocity)

9. Angular velocity • Thus, t2 (instantaneous angular velocity) Δθ t1 θ2 θ1 Units: rads/s

10. Angular acceleration • Similarly we can definite the angular acceleration as, (average angular acceleration) (instantaneous angular acceleration) Units: rads/s2

23. The Kinetic Energy of Rotation

24. It is clear that a rotating body has kinetic energy.

25. It is clear that a rotating body has kinetic energy. • However it is not clear how to calculate the KE of the body since (1) the particles making the body move at different velocities, (2) the KE of the body as a whole is zero since the com has a velocity of zero.

26. The kinetic energy is found by summing the KE of the particles of the body and writing the velocity in terms of the angular velocity (which is the same for all particles).

27. The kinetic energy is found by summing the KE of the particles of the body and writing the velocity in terms of the angular velocity (which is the same for all particles). Moment of inertia

28. The kinetic energy is found by summing the KE of the particles of the body and writing the velocity in terms of the angular velocity (which is the same for all particles). Moment of inertia

29. The momentum of inertia (rotational inertia) about some rotational point is the measure of the resistance to a change in the angular acceleration due to the action of a torque. (Moment of Inertia)

30. The rotational inertia depends not only on the mass of the object but how it is distributed wrt the rotational axis. Axis of rotation (1) (2) Consider the two rods which have identical total mass . Both rods balance at the centre. However rod 2 rotates more freely than rod 1. Rod 1 has a larger moment of inertia than rod 2.

31. Moment of Inertia of some objects

32. The moment of inertia for a continuous body is:

33. The moment of inertia for a continuous body is: • If the rotational inertia of a body is known about any axis which passes through its com then the parallel-axis theorem can be used to find the moment of inertia about any parallel axis. (parallel-axis theorem)

43. Torque

44. A simple definition of torque is an influence which tends to change the rotational motion of an object. • The Torque = Force applied X perpendicular distance from the axis or point of rotation to the line of action of the force. Alt:

45. Newton’s 2nd law can be rewritten for a rotating body as: (at is the tangential acceleration)
