Unformatted text preview: TYPES OF MOTION OF A RIGID BODY By definition a rigid body consists of many mass points (mi) located at different points (r, ) but (r, — 13. ) is fixed so it neither changes shape nor size as it moves. This 151in considbrable simplification in describing the two types of motion it can have: _ _ For a rigid body one can define a center of gravity and show that it is the same as the center of V mass. Zmi 7"; rem : —' ._., 2m!- Consider a rigid body placed some distance above the Earth. i) Each mass m experiences a force Total force on rigid body w = 2W,- = ~Emig3") n as if it was a single object of mass M. ii) Each mass m has potential energy Pg (0 : mg)»,- Total potential energy Pg =zmigyi :ngcm Emigi 2m 1 As if it was a single mass M located at the center ofrnass of the rigid body; Since ycm : TWTESOFRMIHON Translation: All the masses have the same linear velocity and the same linear acceleration “- 2E¢O 21' = A J.
