Rev. 2REVIEW SHEET #8: Rolling MotionRolling motion combines translational motion of an object’s center of mass and rotational motion about an axis passing through the center of mass.The linear acceleration of the center of mass is determined by Newton’s Second Law for Translational Motion: extcmFMa=∑rr(M = the total mass of the object)The angular acceleration of the object about an axis through the center of mass is determined by Newton’s Second Law for Rotational Motion: extIτα=⋅∑rrThe latter equation is valid provided the following conditions are met:(1) The axis through the center of mass must be an axis of symmetry;(2) The axis must not change direction.If the object rolls without slipping, the relationships between the linear and angular kinematic variables (see Review Sheet #6) apply: srθ=(θin radians), rvϖ=and tanraα=Use them to reduce the number of unknowns involved in a problem.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
