8.1 Rigid Bodies, Translations, and Rotations A rigid body is an object or a system of particles in which the distances between particles are fixed (remain constant). In other words, a rigid body must be solid (but not all solid bodies are rigid). Raise your hand if you can think of solid body that is not rigid.

8.1 Rigid Bodies, Translations, and Rotations A rigid body may have translational motion, rotational motion, or a combination. It may roll with or without slipping.

8.2 Torque, Equilibrium, and Stability It takes a force to start an object rotating; that force is more effective the farther it is from the axis of rotation , and the closer it is to being perpendicular to the line to that axis.
8.2 Torque, Equilibrium, and Stability The perpendicular distance from the line of force to the axis of rotation is called the lever arm. The product of the force and the lever arm is called the torque.

8.2 Torque, Equilibrium, and Stability Torque is a vector (it produces an angular acceleration), and its direction is along the axis of rotation, with the sign given by the right-hand rule.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
