Unformatted text preview: line of action ” of the force. The line of action of a force is a line parallel to the force and coincident with the force. There is a relationship between torque, moment of inertia and angular acceleration that is called Newton’s second law (rotation) τ net = I α . Also, we have in a manner analogous to linear motion, W = ∫ τ d θ (work by a torque) P = τϖ (power by a torque) W net = ∆ K rot (workrotational kinetic energy theorem) EXAMPLES [in class]...
