Physics 1D03 Angular velocity vector: parallel to the axis of rotation, following a similar right-hand rule: Angular acceleration vector: parallel to the angular velocity, if | ϖ | is increasing. ϖ rotation direction ϖ Force causes linear acceleration: F net = m a Torque causes angular acceleration: τ net = I α ?
Physics 1D03 Q: How much torque does it take to rotate a particular object? Better: How much torque does it take to change the rate of rotation ? What property of an object determines the response (angular acceleration) to an unbalanced external torque? Force causes linear acceleration: F net = m a Torque causes angular acceleration: τ net = I α ?

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.
