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 ?
