9.5 Rotational Work and Energy DEFINITION OF ROTATIONAL WORK The rotational work done by a constant torque in turning an object through an angle is !" = R W Requirement: The angle must be expressed in radians. SI Unit of Rotational Work: joule (J)

Calculate the kinetic energy of a mass m undergoing rotational motion at radius r and moving with tangential speed v T For a system of rotating masses, the total kinetic energy is the sum over the kinetic energies of the individual masses,
