: Solution: Sum of impulse forces at time
Trajectory (eliminate from above):  Arbitrary force (analogous to arbitrary
periodic force above) Moments and

HW
Torque: (Moment of a force about the
origin)
Angular momentum: (Moment of
momentum about the origin)  Wasn’t really covered in class… see
example on page 39.
