Recall linear momentum: for a particle, p = m v . Newton’s 2 nd Law: The net external force on a particle is equal to the rate of change of its momentum. dt d external p F = m I v ω F τ p L (“angular momentum”) To get the corresponding angular relations for a rigid body, replace: 2 Physics 1D03 3 Angular momentum of a rotating body: Angular momentum, L , is the product of the moment of inertia and the angular velocity. Units: kg m 2 /s (no special name). Newton’s 2 nd Law for rotation: the torque due to external forces is equal to the rate of change of L....
