Rotational Dynamics
9.1 The Action of Forces and Torques on Rigid Objects
In pure translational motion (Curvilinear or linear), all points on an object travel on parallel paths.
The most general motion is a combination of translation and rotatio
Chapter 8
Rotational Kinematics
8.1 Rotational Motion and Angular Displacement
In the simplest kind of rotation, points on a rigid object move on circular paths around an axis of rotation.
When an object rotates, points on the object move on circular path

Chapter 5 Dynamics of Uniform Circular Motion
5.1 Uniform Circular Motion
DEFINITION OF UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION Uniform circular motion is the motion of an object traveling at a constant speed on a circular path.

Let T be the t
LECTURE NOTE 4
Newtons Laws of Motion
The concept of force * Classes of force: (A) Contact forces. (B) Field forces. Contact forces arise from physical contact . Action-at-a-distance (field) forces do not require contact and include gravity and electrical

LECTURE NOTE 2
Kinematics in One Dimension
Displacement The motion of a particle is completely specified if the particles position in space is known at all times. Kinematics deals with the concepts that are needed to describe motion. Dynamics deals with t
