Unformatted text preview: izz is the radius vector from the origin to the mass element. The acceleration force on this mass element is dfdt V pdVdw x r + x ( xr) , (2.2.18) dt dt II where df, contains both internal and external forces [see (2.2.14)] and the last term has been written by using (2.2.17). We use the identity for the triple vector product a x (b x c) = b(a - c) -c(a - b) (2.2.19) to write (2.2.18) in the form df, = p dV -x r +± (o . r) -r(t -w) . (2.2.20) Ldtd To find the acceleration torque on this mass element we write dT, = r x df,.
