Chapter 10 Rotation In this chapter we will study the rotational motion of rigid bodies about a fixed axis. We will introduce the following new concepts (analogous to old concepts in translational motion): - Angular displacement -Average and instantaneous angular velocity (symbol: ω ) -Average and instantaneous angular acceleration (symbol: α ) -Rotational inertia also known as moment of inertia (symbol I ) - Torque (symbol τ ) We will also calculate the kinetic energy associated with rotation, write Newton’s second law for rotational motion, and introduce the work-kinetic energy theorem for rotational motion (10-1)

The Rotational Variables We will study the rotational motion of rigid bodies about fixed axes . A rigid body is defined as one that can rotate with all its parts locked together. A fixed axis means that the object rotates about an axis that does not move. We can describe the motion of a rigid body rotating about a fixed axis by specifying just one parameter . We take the the z -axis to be the fixed axis of rotation. We define a reference line which is fixed in the rigid body and is perpendicular to the rotational axis. From top view, the angular position of the reference line at any time t is defined by the angle θ(t) that the reference line makes with the position at t = 0. θ(t) defines the position of all the points on the rigid body because all the points are locked as they rotate. The angle θ is related to the arc length s traveled by a point at a distance r from the axis via the equation Note: The angle θ is measured in radians s r θ= (10-2)
