**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....
