Unformatted text preview: The impulse imparted to a particle by a force F is equal to the change in the momentum of the particle: The moment of inertia of a system of particles is defined as Parallel axis theorem: I = I CM + Md 2 The torque due to a force F about an origin in an inertial frame is defined to be Given two vectors A and B , the cross product A x B is a vector C having a magnitude The angular momentum L of a particle having linear momentum p = m v is where r is the vector position of the particle relative to an origin in an inertial frame. The net external torque acting on a system is:...
