Work Figure 11.9. Work done by a force. Suppose a particle with mass m is connected to the end of a rod (with negligible mass). Under the influence of a force F, the system rotates through an angle [Delta][theta] (see Figure 11.9). The work done by the force F is determined by the tangential component of F Here r d[theta] is the length of the arc traversed by the particle. The total work done by the force

Unformatted text preview: during a finite rotation (from [theta] i to [theta] f ) is given by This equation is very similar to what we have derived for linear motion: The total work done can now be calculated or This can be rewritten as This relation shows that the work done by the torque acting on a rigid body is equal to the change in rotational kinetic energy of that body....

    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.

    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.

    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.
