Lecture 14 Today's Concepts:
Rotational Motion
Moment of Inertia Physics 211 Lecture 14, Slide 1
Physics Good prelecture, but just a confusing topic in general.
the moments of solid objects compared to shells and how to calculate each
where do people find massless rods?
I think this actually makes sense.
Should we find the integral each time or just memorize some formulas?
what exactly is moment of inertia, what does that expression actually mean?
I still don't really understand anything with the word angular in it. I think my
brain shuts down a little bit when it comes across that word.
kinetic energy as it relates to rotation.
triple integrals.
Do you guys do sculptures on the side? That system of particles looked like a
piece of modern art.
Heisenberg is out for a drive when he's stopped by a traffic cop. The cop says
'Do you know how fast you were going?' Heisenberg says 'No, but I know
where I am.'
Moment of Inertia calculations!! (also, you should bring back your dog. He could
sit with me and my friends during lecture so he doesn't fall off the counter.
the
However, if he does fall of the counter, you could make that a physics problem
and put it on the test. Example: "If my dog were to run off the table with an initial
velocity of .5 meters/second, how far would he land away from the counter?"
Also, "If students are seated 2 meters away from the counter, would the dog hit
them on his way down?") :)

are put up on the projection, so i have a 1.67% chance of making it up there.

identical rigid, massless rods as shown. The
moment of inertia about the a, b, and c axes is Ia,
Ib, and Ic respectively.
