Rotations: Axes and Sign Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 2 When an object rotates, it has symmetry with respect to an axis . If the object is in the x-y axis a vector along the z-axis indicates the rotation direction The right-hand rule determines the direction of rotation Counter-clockwise is positive Clockwise is negative z + ω
Rotational Kinetic Energy Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 3 A mass M on the end of a string is being spun around in a circle with radius r and angular velocity ω What is the object’s tangential velocity? M v = ω r Does the object have kinetic energy? K = 1 2 mv 2 K = 1 2 m r ( ) 2 K = 1 2 m 2 r 2

Kinetic Energy of Rotating Disk Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 A disk with radius R and mass M is spinning with angular velocity ω r i Kinetic energy of one small piece of the wheel K i = 1 2 mv i 2 v i = r i K i = 1 2 mr i 2 2 Sum all the individual pieces K Total = 1 2 mr i 2 2 i Define I = mr i 2 i Moment of inertia K Total = I 2
Rotational Moment of Inertia Lecture 13 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 • Moment of inertia is a measure of how difficult it is to get an object rotating – It is the rotational analog of the inertia of Newton’s First Law • The rotational moment of inertia depends on both the geometry of the object and the axis of rotation I = mr i 2 i kg m 2
