Rotational Inertia Rotational Inertia moment of inertia analog of mass I = mass x square of distance from axis = m r 2 Back to - Coke cans rolling down ramp: Full Empty Empty can has larger rotational inertia difficult to get rolling slower Spin raw eggs! Spin boiled eggs! I = mr 2 I = 1/2 mr 2 Difference?

What is the rotational analog of force? Torque = product of force and lever arm (sometimes called twisting force) Torque = Applied force x lever arm = F x l Most Effective is a push (force): Maximizes Torque (other examples - see-saw, lever & fulcrum,. .) lever arm = distance from axis of rotation to a line drawn along direction of applied force F l
