Angular Motion and Torque

More spinning things! Records, and wheels, and doors, and other fun things. The equations that govern this kind of motion are just like the ones we learned in kinematics, except they have different symbols. Lots of funky Greek letters in this one, folks.

Rotational Inertia

097 – Rotational Inertia In this video Paul Andersen explains how the angular momentum of an object if a product of the rotational inertia and the angular velocity. The rotational inertia depends on the mass, radius and shape of the rotating objects. A sample calculation and several examples are included. Do you speak another language? […]
